News Brief: A CNN survey suggests most Americans don’t back the Trump administration’s plans to create a new military branch known as the Space Force. The survey, based on a sampling of 1,002 American adults, showed that 55 percent would rather keep the Air Force in charge of protecting U.S. space assets. Phil Larson, a space policy adviser in the Obama administration who’s now at the University of Colorado, joked on Twitter that “Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace” (the movie featuring the widely panned Jar Jar Binks character) won higher ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. Support for the Space Force was similarly low in an Economist/YouGov survey. Such polls aren’t likely to sway the White House, however. Check out CNN’s story and the detailed survey results.
