Twitter Users Offer Trump Their Own Space Force Logo Ideas

Then, on Thursday afternoon, the Trump/Pence team sent out an email asking for readers to vote on one of six proposed logos for Space Force that will be used on a "new line of gear".

"The time has come to establish the Unites States Space Force", Pence said in a speech to U.S. military and civilian personnel at the Pentagon, citing threats from China and Russian Federation.

The Space Force would be the first new military branch since the Air Force was created in 1947 and would be meant to be equal to the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. Both nations are reportedly developing "hypersonic missiles", which USA missile defense radars may not be able to detect.

"China and Russian Federation have been conducting highly sophisticated on-orbit activities that could enable them to maneuver their satellites into close proximity of ours, posing unprecedented new dangers to our space systems", he said. Pence also said President Trump would request $8 billion to spend on the space security systems over the next five years.

The Pentagon will hire space experts to create the new force which will be headed by a four-star general and be operational by 2020.

Trump is obviously a fan of the new branch, tweeting "Space Force all the way!" as Pence spoke.

Trump has championed the idea, and cries of "Space Force" have become common at his rallies.

When president John F. Kennedy delivered a speech in 1962 explaining why America was sending men to the Moon, he famously said, "There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet".

Melania Trump Sides with LeBron James: " He's Working to Do Good Things"
To the sporting world and largely beyond, he's King James, but to President Trump , LeBron James is no intellectual genius. An unnamed senior White House official told ABC News that Trump wasn't siding with James, but rather siding with children.

The White House has officially laid the groundwork for Space Force, the Trump administration's efforts to expand the US armed forces into outer space.

It says the department will establish a Space Command to develop warfighting operations, a Space Development Agency to more quickly identify and develop new technologies, a Space Operations Force of leaders and fighters and a new support structure.

Mr Pence said the "time has come" for America to "prepare for the next battlefield" and secure America's "dominance" among the stars.

Many members of congress are vowing to stop what they believe is a waste of time and money by the military. "This is a critical step toward's establishing the Space Force as the sixth branch of our armed forces".

"This is a process we're in", Mattis noted.

The creation of the newest branch of the armed services will require congressional approval.

Mattis had previously opposed the creation of a separate military branch focused on space, writing to Rep. Mike Turner of OH in July of 2017 that he did "not wish to add a separate service that would likely present a narrower and even parochial approach to space operations". They include the new command and creating a civilian position as an assistant Secretary of Defense for Space to oversee the transition.
