Hear about the importance of the space domain to our national security and the evolution of the U.S. Space Force. Lt. Gen. Liquori will join Lt. Gen. Jack Weinstein (Ret). for this conversation.

Established on December 20, 2019, the U.S. Space Force (USSF) is a very new branch of the Armed Forces. The USSF organizes, trains, and equips space forces in order to protect U.S. and allied interests in space and to provide space capabilities to the joint force. How did the USSF come to be? Why is it of interest to the U.S. to have a Space Force? What U.S. and allied interests is the USSF protecting in space?
