VP Pence Makes Official Space Force Announcement

"Space Force all the way!" That's  President Donald Trump's response  to his administration's official announcement of his vision for the new frontier.

On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence said the administration is moving to make the Space Force a reality by 2020.

The Space Force would become the sixth branch of the armed forces.

The Department of Defense is  tasked with establishing  a Space Development Agency, a Space Operations Force and a U.S.

Space Command.

The branch will need approval from Congress. "America will always seek peace, in space as on the Earth," said Pence. "But history proves that peace only comes through strength.

And in the realm of outer space, the United States Space Force will be that strength."
