First of all?
There is a remote chance that this is gonna happen….
The Pentagon wants the Space ‘Force’ to be condensed from the other service branches into the Air Force. which ALREADY has a Space Command …

The jokes and satire have been rolling out non-stop since Pence made the pitch….
Speaking alongside Defense Secretary James Mattis at the Pentagon Thursday, Vice President Pence announced that “establishing the Space Force is an idea whose time has come.”
The big picture: The Vice President explained the Pentagon has begun the process of establishing Space Force as a 6th branch of the U.S. military by 2020, beginning with the establishment of a new combatant command overseen by a four-star general. However, only Congress has the power to establish a new branch of the military.
