Donald Trump wasn’t going to leave office without creating the first new branch of the military we’ve seen in 70 years. It was basically inevitable. Since he was also about to escalate the conflict with Iran around the same time this new branch was created, a lot of people missed the news about Space Force, a company of soldiers being trained to fight in space.

Trump wanted the Space Force to exist as a separate unit from the Air Force, the branch that has technically been responsible for monitoring space safety, as much as it is needed. What’s actually happened, according to The Atlantic, is that Space Force will operate within the Air Force, sort of how the Marine Corps is a part of the Department of the Navy. The same unit that focuses on space operations will continue to do so. Only now they’re SPACE FORCE. Once again, Trump has just rebranded something and slapped his name on it.

It still wasn’t really noted until pictures of the “new” Space Force uniforms were released to the general public, causing people to raise their eyebrows:

The Department of the Air Force has responded to the mockery with some dry comments about  using “current Army/Air Force uniforms” to save money and adding that Space Force soldiers “will look like their joint counterparts they’ll be working with, on the ground.”

An admission that has people realizing whats the Space Force is really all about:
