Abstract : The United States and the world are witnessing a transformation of space. More countries are reaching space, or trying to, crowding it more and more. Years of satellite launches, collisions and anti-satellite weapons testing have left lots of junk and debris. Although we have never faced a situation where wars on Earth have escalated into space, there is a potential to do so. Through all events, the president must assure access to space.
