It’s a title reminiscent of a cheesy sci-fi movie or an ’80s cartoon. An idea that conjures up images of storm troopers marching in formation and light sabers locked in battle. But Space Force is very real and it’s conceptualization is now taking place at the highest levels of American politics. In June, President Trump officially directed the Defense Department to establish a sixth branch of the U.S. military, called Space Force, stating that it would ensure American dominance in the final frontier and that it was a necessary step to defend America into the future.

“It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space,” he said. “We must have American dominance in space.” Vice President Pence announced Thursday that the Defense Department will be releasing a report outlining the first stages to “implement the president’s guidance and turn his vision into a reality.” And just hours later, an official email went out to supporters from Brad Parscale, President Trump’s reelection campaign manager, asking Americans to vote on the new Space Force logo.
