One of the key functions of the new branch would be to aid USA forces on the ground and the air force, giving them combat superiority.
Second, the report calls for the establishment of a Space Operations Force - an elite group of joint warfighters, specializing in the domain of space, who will form the backbone of the nation's newest armed service.
The report says the new command will "improve and evolve space warfighting", focusing on doctrine, tactics, techniques and procedures.
But, earlier this week, Mr Mattis said he is in "complete alignment" with Mr Trump's concerns about U.S. space assets.
Messi rompió la relación con un ayudante de Sampaoli porque "pasaron cosas"
Sin embargo, aseguró que la etapa con la albiceleste fue buena al igual que con Sampaoli: "Siempre funcionamos bien juntos. Hoy me encuentro en un lugar donde me siento cómodo y tengo que seguir aprendiendo.
"It is becoming a contested war fighting domain and we have to adapt to that reality", Mattis said as he introduced Pence.
Trump 2020 re-election campaign manager Brad Parscale emailed supporters on Tuesday asking them to vote on a Space Force logo which will be sold later on.
The announcement follows a seven-week review by DoD, directed by President Donald J. Trump, of "the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces". Except Mars has nothing to do with Trump's proposed Space Force and none of them are as fun as the ones that Bloomberg came up with.
The steps towards establishing a Space Force are creating a Space Development Agency, a Space Operations Force and a United States Space Command, the White House added.

One of the arguments in favor of devoting more resources to a Space Force or Space Command is that American rivals like Russian Federation and China appear increasingly ready to strike US space-based capabilities in the event of a conflict.
He said that the report "identifies concrete steps that our administration will take to lay the foundation for a new Department of the Space Force".
In the meantime, the Space Command would be led by a four-star general, and Pence said a new high-level civilian post - assistant defense secretary for space - would also be created.
THE GOAL. According to Pence, "It is not enough to have an American presence in space".
The Pentagon's existing military branches are: the Navy, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Army and Air Force.
Chicago appeals for help after dozens shot over weekend
Police records showed that in three hours beginning at 1:30a.m., 30 people were shot and two persons killed in 10 incidents. At least 40 people were shot in one seven-hour stretch between Saturday night and Sunday morning, with four killed.
