About Space Force

Space Force separated itself from the Air Force's Space Command to become the sixth branch of the military, joining the Air force, Marine Corps, Army, Navy, and Coast Guard. Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act in December, which authorized a budget for the Space Force.

Currently, the U.S. Air Force manages the space domain through the Space Command. Space Force would stand as a separate branch alongside the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. However, the newest branch is expected to be akin to the structure of the Marine Corps, which is a component of the U.S. Department of the Navy but has separate representation on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The new service branch will be represented on the Joint Chiefs and overseen by an Air Force undersecretary for space.
