Pentagon Eyes Space Warfare Capability

Vice reports that “the US Defense Department has asked Congress for $108 million to fund a new facility in Colorado dedicated to drawing up plans and running experiments for war in outer space, as anxiety grows about the possibility of extraterrestrial conflict with China or Russia.”  

“‘Potential adversaries are rapidly developing capabilities to deny the US and its allies’ use of space during a conflict,’ US Air Force Major General Robert D. Rego, the US Strategic Command official responsible for the center, told VICE News.”  

“The facility he’ll run is called the Joint Interagency Combined Space Operations Center, which goes by the awkward military handle JICSpOC (pronounced jick-SPOCK). Its job, he said, will be to ‘better integrate our space operations in response to these threats.'”
