He said that the report "identifies concrete steps that our administration will take to lay the foundation for a new Department of the Space Force". Twitter says, "Yes, but will Space Force members get to dress like Stormtroopers?" "Space is essential to the nation's security and prosperity".

Its creation however is not a done deal, as it needs to be approved by Congress, and the concept has met with some skepticism from lawmakers and defense officials who are wary of the cost and added bureaucracy.

In addition to the planned authorization of an additional $8 billion for investment in space, Pence said the president's fiscal 2020 budget proposal next February will contain resources to begin building the Department of the Space Force in earnest.

Pence argued that the United States did not start this arms race.

This will be an "elite group of joint war fighters specializing in the domain of space", and it will draw its ranks from men and women from across the military, according to Pence.

"As President Trump has said, in his words, it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space - we must have American dominance in space". "But we can do this within the U.S. Air Force".

On Tuesday, however, the Pentagon chief said he fully supported the idea of creating a new US Space Command.
