51. Space Command ended in 2002.

 

It's part of the reason for an upgrade now. Space assets are not getting equal time in the fighter-obsessed Air Force. Space Command will encompass the Space Command recreated this spring.

Active 23 September 1985 – 1 October 2002[1]
29 August 2019 – present
Country United States

It was originally created in September 1985 to coordinate the use of outer space by the United States Armed Forces.[4] The commander-in-chief of U.S. Space Command (CINCUSSPACECOM) also functioned as the commander-in-chief of the binational U.S.–Canadian North American Aerospace Defense Command (CINCNORAD), and for the majority of time during USSPACECOM's existence, was also the commander of Air Force Space Command.

The 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed into law in 2018, directed the reestablishment of U.S. Space Command as a sub-unified combatant command under U.S. Strategic Command. Space Command was officially reestablished on August 29, 2019.
