Well, nothing is going to happen until congress says it's going to happen.
They're the one's who control the money and as we all know nothing happens without money.
And many members of the Senate and House Armed Services Committees agree with the Generals,
it's not needed and is a solution in search of a problem.

If this were to move beyond the scope of the existing USAF responsibility my guess is it would evolve to some form of joint command that reports directly to DoD rather than as a new "6th" service.  Much in the same was as SOCOM exists.

Space Shuttle Door Gunner specialty hashed out yet?


Only available for those who wash out of the Imperial Storm Trooper Indoctrination Course...

Five is RIGHT OUT. Once the number three, being the third number be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade to-wards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuffit. Amen."

Easy solution:

Reorganize NASA as a uniformed service under Title 10 and place them under the Secretary of Defense. Transfer budget, personnel and operations of both NASA, National Reconnaissance Office and USAF Space Command to new service with its senior leader a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

You're welcome.

A little respect here would go a long way.  President Trump has a title and good manners say it should be used.

Not to mention that the United States Constitution specifically enumerates the power to Congress to establish the military, and the President to exercise executive authority over it.

Merge NASA with the commercial space branch in the FAA. Take the Star Force out of the existing military space commands. Transfer their troops, equipment, budgets and bases to the new branch. Just change the letter heads. You're welcome.

That'd work too.

I never understood why they never made NASA a uniformed service not unlike NOAA and UHS anyway.

One of the main reasons NASA was created as a civilian agency was to promote the peaceful use of space, which is why defense and intelligence
missions are handled by the USAF, not NASA (at least on paper.)
