All you need to know about Trump's Space Force

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said he was not against establishing a sixth branch of the military for space when he wrote Congress about it previous year.

Mattis said the Pentagon's space defense has been a "point of discussion" from the earliest days of the Trump administration. As a way to celebrate President Trump's huge announcement, our campaign will be selling a new line of gear. Later in the week, he is scheduled to make the first visit to Argentina by a US defense secretary since 2005.

But Trump's Space Force would add more than just a competitive presence in space or an additional focus on protection of US space assets. The logo itself takes the Russian flag and incorporates designs similar to Trump's own logos. At the meeting of the National Council on space, he said: "we are cosmic forces".

"What was once peaceful and uncontested is now crowded and adversarial", said Pence.

But the question is, who will the United States be competing against? But as planes continued to advance technologically and find their way into mainstream travel, "Congress decided they needed to have a new branch of the military", Dodge said.

The proposed sixth branch of the USA military will "confront the emerging threats in the boundless expanse of space" according to Pence.

He specifically mentioned a "new" Chinese military division that oversees space operations. It will be a first new branch of the American military since 1947.

However, to create something like this from trump and Pence will need a few more than a couple of Grand speeches.

Trump's tweet, coupled with the fact that his supporters have reportedly broken out in "space force" chants during recent rallies, have clearly been the ideal fodder for Twitter's meme creators, but it appears likely that neither the memes nor the backlash will be coming to an end any time soon.

"Third, the report calls for a new joint organization - the Space Development Agency - that will ensure the men and women of the Space Force have the cutting-edge warfighting capabilities that they need and deserve", he said. This means we won't be seeing any real progress toward the sixth branch of the military until 2019, when Congress, along with the Trump administration, can begin exploring new possibilities.

This fourth addition could be what most differentiates the Space Force from the AFSPC.

For months, Donald Trump has been calling for a sixth branch of the military that would be equipped to fight wars in space - and he's on his way to getting his wish. This could be a military astronaut corps, though the specific roles of these war fighters have yet to be defined.
