Trump orders creation of independent space force
If I was a kid and heard there was going to be a space force....man I would be shooting for that as a career. But in all seriousness, space exploration has always been important and with technology evolving there are more opportunities to understand what else is out there and how it could be a threat or help us.
a space force, while it sounds crazy, is one of Trump's better ideas.
Reagan had his Strategic Defense initiative (aka Star Wars). I remember Bell Labs working on this missile defense system. Not so crazy and tech has come a long way since the early '80s
I would call it the moonraker Division.(007 movie)
Oh...kie...doke... then... mr anti science starts the new space race. Mmmkay. Let’s see what head spinning jargon ‘splodes outta this one in the mainstream media! What a ride! No matter how stupid and ugly... I feel like the next Hunter S Thompson... I just need another drink to get through it!
This is a distraction from the cruelty of his administration.
first, i never thought i’d find myself reading “defense news.” but now that i have, i’m amazed they have the sense of humor necessary to run this story.
Also an incredible way to generate a phantom economy the same way China did with their ghost cities.
It's being said that it's to defend our satellites.
Not sure I buy that. We already have the US Space Command for that and Trump is not one to duplicate positions much less whole agencies.
3yrs ago, US intelligence learned that the Russian and Chinese satellites were shadowing theres in close proximity to steal data during transmission. They floated the idea to ward off such activities by weaponizing them in the future. He's just taking credit as always.
Why did Team America just pop into my head?
