• On Friday, President Trump unveiled the logo for the sixth branch of the Armed Forces – Space Force. Trump tweeted: “After consultation with our Great Military Leaders, designers, and others, I am pleased to present the new logo for the United States Space Force, the Sixth Branch of our Magnificent Military!”

• Space Force was established in December with the signing of the annual defense policy bill. Though Trump coined the name Space Force, the idea for a separate branch of the military for space originated as a bipartisan House idea in 2017. Space Force’s goal is to protect U.S. military assets in space from threats from Russia and China, which have tested anti-satellite weapons and created their own space military services.

• A US Space Force spokesperson said in a statement Friday that the newly unveiled seal “pays tribute to the newest Armed Service that organizes, trains, and equips space forces in order to protect U.S. and allied interests in space and to provide space capabilities to the joint force.”

• “The U.S. Space Force seal honors the Department of the Air Force’s proud history and long-standing record of providing the best space capabilities in the world. The delta symbol, the central design element in the seal, was first used as early as 1942 by the U.S. Army Air Forces; and was used in early Air Force space organization emblems dating back to 1961. Since then, the delta symbol has been a prominent feature in military space community emblems.”

“After consultation with our Great Military Leaders, designers, and others, I am pleased to present the new logo for the United States Space Force, the Sixth Branch of our Magnificent Military!” Trump tweeted Friday afternoon,The logo is similar to the one that was used by Air Force Space Command, which was the predecessor to Space Force.

Space Force was established in December with the signing of the annual defense policy bill.

Its establishment fulfilled a top priority for Trump since he first floated the idea in 2018 and turned it into a reliable applause line at his campaign rallies.

Though Trump coined the name Space Force, the idea for a separate branch of the military for space originated as a bipartisan House idea in 2017.

Space Force’s goal is to protect U.S. military assets in space from threats from Russia and China, which have tested anti-satellite weapons and created their own space military services.

Since the idea for Space Force was first pitched, there has been much speculation and interest in some of the lighter, cultural aspects of the service, including what its uniform, logo and official song will be.
