Does space deserve its own command?

Space is inching ever closer to becoming the next battlefield as the Defense Department responds to militarization efforts by China and Russia.

The Pentagon is considering the creation of a combatant command for space warfare, according to NextGov.

The proposal is part of a DOD report sent to Congress last week. The department is trying to decide whether space should be its own command or fall under another command, NextGov reported.
