The president characterized his own announcement as a "big statement", and added that the Space Force and the Air Force will be considered "separate but equal". The other U.S. military branches are the Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps. In a letter last summer to Republican Rep. Mike Turner of OH, who spearheaded the congressional effort against a separate space force, Mattis said he was opposed to the idea.

This isn't enough for the United States president who said: "Our destiny beyond the Earth is not only a matter of national identity but a matter of national security". The president also signed Space Policy Directive-2 in May of this year to reform United States commercial space regulatory framework, seeking to ensure our place as a leader in space commerce. The newly reconvened Space Council is helmed by Vice President Mike Pence. But it is likely to raise fears over the militarisation of space and prompted a slew of Twitter parodies featuring Star Trek and Star Wars. The name? Space Force.

The President also added that the USA will soon send humans to the Moon and also revealed that the Mars colonization plans are also going on steadily.
Dubbed a "space traffic management policy", the new directive is created to handle the growing amount of debris in orbit around the Earth.
