Which of these six Space Force logos is the most, er, spacey?

Critics argue that Trump's Space Force would be stepping on the toes of the U.S. Air Force Space Command, which now oversees the nation's military operations in space.

Rather than building up a Space Force from scratch, the Pentagon will take individuals and units working on space programs in the Air Force and other branches, with the objective of having the "United States Department of the Space Force" by 2020. Both nations are reportedly developing "hypersonic missiles", which USA missile defense radars may not be able to detect.

"As their actions make clear, our adversaries have transformed space into a warfighting domain already, and the United States will not shrink from this challenge", he said.

"President Trump wants a SPACE FORCE - a groundbreaking endeavour for the future of America and the final frontier", read the email from the Trump campaign.

"We have been warning for years of the need to protect our space assets and to develop more capable space systems", the lawmakers said in a joint statement.

Space is "becoming a contested war-fighting domain", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Thursday.

Responding to Thursday's outlining of plans for a Space Force, Democrats were withering about Mr Trump's ambitions.

Trump is obviously a fan of the new branch, tweeting "Space Force all the way!" as Pence spoke. "Next February, in the president's budget, we will call on the Congress to marshal the resources we need to stand up the Space Force, and before the end of next year, our administration will work with the congress to enact the statutory authority for the space force in the National Defense Authorization Act", he said.

The Pentagon's plan, released Thursday, identifies China and Russian Federation as "strategic competitors" that are "explicitly pursuing space war fighting capabilities to neutralize U.S space capabilities in a time of conflict".

The Pentagon sent a report to Congress on Tuesday detailing steps towards meeting Trump's order.

"Creating a new branch of the military is not a simple process", Pence noted.

The Pentagon proposal delivered to Congress on Thursday lays out plans to consolidate USA warfighting space forces and make organizational changes to boost the acquisition and development of technologies.

"It's not enough to merely have an American presence in space", he said.

"Now the time has come to write the next great chapter in the history of our armed forces, to prepare for the next battlefield where America's best and bravest will be called to deter and defeat a new generation of threats to our people and to our nation", Pence said. He also says that the current system, with the Air Force in charge of military space operations, is not ideal.
