Space, the cosmos, the universe, is an idea, a concept that has been haunting the human mind for literally thousands and thousands of years.

Way back in the second century, in his work “A True Story” writer Luciano de Samosata toyed with the idea of reaching the stars. And he wasn’t the only one. Since then, there have been many others, like Cyrano de Bergerac, Daniel Defoe, and of course, Jules Verne! They continued to fantasize about flying to distant alien worlds.

However, over the last few decades, another facet of space has been gradually creating a new competition: the war of the galaxies, the use of space as a new battleground.

The idea was basically put into action by Ronald Reagan during the last stage of the Cold War. However, although it fell into limbo for a while, now this idea is resurfacing again. In fact, on 20 December 2019, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, signed the order establishing the creation of the new United States Space Forces. A new division of the US Army that joins the Navy, the Army, the Air Force, and the Marines.

Now, what exactly are these space forces? Why has Donald Trump decided to put them into action? How have other powers such as China or Russia reacted to this decision? When and how did the idea of Star Wars arise? In this video, we answer all these questions and we also bring you closer to one of the most fiercely contested competitions of all times: the Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union.
