Paris (AFP) - French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday announced the creation of a new national military space force command that will eventually be part of his country's air force. The declaration -- made on the eve of France's Bastille Day national celebrations that feature a military parade down Paris's Champs-Elysees -- mirrors an initiative in the US championed by President Donald Trump. "To assure the development and the reinforcement of our capacities in space, a high command for space will be created in September," Macron told military brass gathered for a traditional pre-Bastille Day reception. He called the renewed military focus on space a "true national security issue". https://www.yahoo.com/news/frances-macron-announces-creation-space-force-command-192653885.html Looks like the French are eager to start up a Space Force of their own. Perhaps they can work as allies with the US. I expect other nations to follow, now that Trump has led the way.
