Inside Story – 🇺🇸 Is the US looking for war in space?

US Vice President Mike Pence says the time has come to prepare for the next battlefield… and that battlefield is space.

The Americans want to create a space force within two years… to defend US satellites and space craft from attack.

It will be the first new branch of the military since 1947.

Pence’s boss Donald Trump wants Congress to vote yes to the plan…and agree additional funding of $8bn.

But who will the US be competing against?

And is it the start of a new space race?

Presenter: Hoda Abdelhamid

Guests
