"We will call it the space force" President Trump proclaimed

Donald Trump said Tuesday that his government may need to create a "space force" after suggesting that space is now a "war-fighting domain".

"The comic adventures that befall a crew of astronauts assigned to a remote military space station", IMDb notes of Space Force.

From Star Wars and Star Trek to Spaceballs and Starship Troopers, sci-fi fans called on their favorite characters to help form and lead the "Space Force" - not to mention that there even was a hokey TV movie in 1978 titled Space Force.

The proposed Space Corps would have functioned like the Marine Corps does within the US Navy; it would have been responsible for overseeing all of the Air Force's operations in space. We have the air force, we'll have the space force. We'll have the space force. A year ago some legislators pushed a bill in Congress that included a provision to establish a new branch of the military dubbed the Space Corps. "I think he likes what you do better than what he does, but he's doing a great job".

SBI reduces charges for non-maintenance of average minimum balance
Tuesday reduced charges for non-maintenance of average minimum balance ( AMB ) in savings accounts by up to 75 per cent. This was more than its September quarter profit of Rs 1,581.55 crore.

After Trump renewed the "space force" proposal, Twitter completely roasted him.

It was unclear whether The Donald was joking about the idea of "Space Force". "Maybe we'll have to do that.' That could happen". Vice President Mike Pence cited America's "prosperity, security and identity" in describing the initiative past year, noting that Russian Federation was eclipsing America beyond Earth's atmosphere and cautioning that both Russian Federation and China were formulating technology that could interfere with U.S. satellites.

"Very soon we're going to Mars", Mr Trump said. It's unclear if Trump's Space Force would be any similar to what the Space Crops was meant to be. But he may be thinking of the National Defense Authorization Act that he signed into law in December.
