Space news: Britain will mimic Trump Space Force says UKSpace chief | Science | News 45

The claim was made by president Will Whitehorn, who argued there will be pressure to protect Britain’s growing presence in space. UKSpace represents Britain’s commercial space industry.

Speaking to Express.co.uk Mr Whitehorn commented: “I think there will come a time when we will have a Royal Space Force in the future, not because I’ll call for it or because our industry will call for it, because its logical.

“If we’re going to put billions and billions of pounds of assets into space, which secure the future of this country, then we’re going to have to defend those assets.

“Defending those assets might partly mean being able to launch new ones very quickly.

“There are going to be bad people in the future who will want to try and do damage to space assets and we have to take account of that, so I do feel a space force is coming in the future.”
