Vice President Mike Pence delivered a speech on Thursday outlining President Donald Trump’s vision of a Space Force, an idea that Trump has repeatedly riffed about at rallies over the past several months.

“Now the time has come to write the next great chapter in the history of our Armed Forces, to prepare for the next battlefield where America’s best and bravest will be called to deter and defeat a new generation of threats to our people, to our nation,” Pence said. “The time has come to establish the United States Space Force.”

Described by the Vice President as a new sixth branch of the Armed Forces “separate from and equal to” the other branches, the Space Force would be tasked with confronting the “new battlefield” of outer space.

Though Defense Secretary James Mattis previously opposed the concept, and the Pentagon recently declined to fund it, the Department of Defense will still release guidelines for its creation on Thursday. These suggestions will include the establishment of a Space Operations Force that Pence said would be “an elite group of joint warfighters specializing in the domain of space, who will form the backbone of the nation’s newest armed service.”
