Special Forces troops could travel through space to get to war zones in future, the head of the American air force suggested yesterday.
Chief of Staff General David Goldfein raised the prospect of elite troops travelling on a mothership to anywhere in the planet within an hour.
Speaking at an air power conference in London, he said the military needed to ‘jump on’ industry plans when it came to innovative technology.
He referred to Sir Richard Branson’s company Virgin Galactic, which plans to make intercontinental space travel a reality.
