These forces are being formed as part of the revolutionary reform of the US Air Force. However, the issue of formation of the US space force has not yet been fully approved.
All the space missions under the US Air Force will come under the umbrella of the US space command after officially approved by the force.
There will also be a new head of the US space command. The 18th member will join the US Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The US Air Force is currently conducting a secret mission with aerospace aircraft X-37b. X-37b has returned to the world with a record of having 718 days in space.
