The United States Space Force (USSF) was officially established as the sixth branch of the US armed forces on 20 December 2019 when President Donald Trump signed the 2020 National Defense Act.

The newest branch of the military will be under the leadership of the Secretary of the Air Force, Barbara Barrett.

Officially, the USSF has been established as a countermeasure to ever-increasing threats from both Russia and China. One of its primary missions is a focus on securing the nation and its allies from orbital threats. Despite this public declaration, there is speculation that the newest branch has been established for other reasons. Some of those reasons are described as extra-terrestrial in nature.

I am reminded of a famous quote from President Ronald Regan. “Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”
