Donald Trump launches ‘Space Force’ a $738 bn defence bill to boost US military superiority in space
President Donald Trump has officially funded a Pentagon force focused on warfare in space - the US Space Force.
The new military service, the first in more than 70 years, falls under the US Air Force.
At an army base near Washington, Mr Trump described space as "the world's newest war-fighting domain".
"Amid grave threats to our national security, American superiority in space is absolutely vital," he said.
"We're leading, but we're not leading by enough, but very shortly we'll be leading by a lot."
