What is Space Force on Netflix about?
Space Force is a workplace comedy series based on the real United States Space Force that has been proposed by President Donald Trump.
Trump called for the establishment a space force as a new military branch in June 2018.
It is believed the Space Force will have control over military operations in outer space.

The series will focus on day-to-day life in the office of the men and women who will make up Trump’s Space Force.
