Washington (AP) - The US House of Representatives has approved the creation of a "space force" as the US's sixth armed force. The Space Independent Space Act is part of a defense budget law package passed by Washington legislators. This is a success for US President Donald Trump, who initiated the creation of Space Force. The draft law states that the "space force" should guarantee US freedom of action in space and protect the interests of the Americans there.
