U.S. Congress Will Authorize The Creation Of Space Force

Vice President Mike Pence visits the US Air Force's 50th Space Wing at Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado in 2017. This is a unit that would end up part of the new Space Force under the latest plan in Congress. USAF

Popular Mechanics: The Space Force Will Become the Sixth Branch of the U.S. Military

  * After more than 60 years, the U.S. military adds another member to the family.
  * A bipartisan defense budget agreement will authorize the creation of the Space Force.
  * The Space Force will be, like the Army or Air Force, a distinct military service under the Pentagon.
  * The service will take over space functions from existing services, wielding them into a single independent branch overseen by a Chief of Space Operations.

It’s really happening. A bipartisan budget agreement for 2020 will see the creation of a new branch of the military specifically oriented towards space. The United States Space Force will be the first new service branch in more than 60 years, tasked to ensure America’s freedom to operate in outer space—or take space away from somebody else.

According to a draft of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Agreement, also known as the 2020 U.S. defense budget, the Pentagon will redesignate the U.S. Air Force’s Space Command the U.S. Space Force, spinning it off from an arm of the Air Force into a separate service.
