    Sounds like Space Force isn't such a stupid idea now, does it?

    That's not part of the job so far...

    Military systems in space provide crucial information to the troops. For example, GPS satellites help the military hit targets precisely. Satellites gather intelligence, detecting things like missile launches. They're also used for communication and collect data on the weather.
    It's worth pointing out a few things the Space Force will not do.
    "It's not about putting military service members in space, it has nothing to do with NASA, it's not about protecting Earth from asteroids or aliens," said Harrison.

    That's the government for ya. The things you think should be part of their mission aren't. Until one day someone says, Hey, we should...
