"We must have American dominance in space", he told reporters in televised comments.
The House past year approved a proposal from Alabama GOP Rep. Mike Rogers to create a Space Corps, which would be the first new military branch since the Air Force was broken out of the Army in 1947.

Trump signs executive order to end separation of immigrant families
The order does not end the "zero-tolerance" policy that criminally prosecutes all adults caught crossing the border illegally. The two immigration bills under consideration in the House could address the separations, but the outlook for passage is dim.
However, the US Congress would need to pass a law authorising it before any new branch of the military could be created. Past year the U.S. House Armed Services Committee drafted a bill to establish the force, citing the need to safeguard U.S. communications and military satellites.

"Russia takes a fundamentally different position and attaches priority to using and exploring space exclusively for peaceful purposes", Zakharova said.
He also revealed plans to conquer Mars and journey to the moon. The U.S. National Security Strategy for 2017 named both Russian Federation and China as the primary threats to the U.S. This would act as a jumping off point for sending astronauts to Mars.
Prime Minister hit by dramatic resignation as MPs debate Brexit
Now the focus shifts to the price of the rebels' compliance, and it could be a high one for the beleaguered prime minister. But a government official said they had just agreed to open talks on the basis of the rebel amendment.
