Why We Need a Space Force

Space capabilities are already an indispensable component of U.S. military power. A Space Force is needed to consolidate authority and responsibility for national security space; to build a robust cadre of space professionals; and to avoid the conflicts of interest inherent in the other Services that have short-changed space programs for decades.
