The Trump Administration has proposed creating what it calls a space force—an independent military service within the Department of the Air Force.

The Administration has also proposed two more space organizations in its budget proposal for fiscal year 2020: a new combatant command and a new agency that would be responsible for the development and acquisition of space systems.

Furthermore, the Administration has proposed creating a civilian Under Secretary for Space who would supervise the space service, report to the
Secretary of the Air Force, and perhaps make policy about space.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issued its own estimates of the costs of the proposed Space Force and other new space organizations.
