This boondoggle will die after the next election.
It is an unaffordable waste with no valid mission!
Kessler be damned, huh?

Don't you think that the Military as it stands today has to evolve? The current branches are historical legacies which may not be properly suited for the new challenges as our world transforms at an ever faster pace (not because of their inability to adapt, but because of the decades of rules and regulations they have to follow while having to surf as best as possible the hectic DC waters...).

Space is a not only a growing "mess" but also becoming increasingly a conflict zone between competing economic and State powers. While it seems the Mission will indeed have to be further clarified, a new platform like the Space Force deserve a chance, the opportunity to build a team of motivated individuals who hopefully will approach things differently and eventually shape the debate about how to best approach the "conflictualization" of Space.

Not sure I fully grasp the question as it relates to the topic. All in capital letters, so should I assume it is sarcasm...? Oh well, I must be dense this evening :) Otherwise I do enjoy the Bay area with its unique combination of charm and 'opportunities'

I was stationed at Travis 40 miles away from Frisco. Travis was a nice base and I always had fun going to Frisco. It is pretty hard for anybody to live their though with the prices of everything. I remember in Vallejo it was $1200 a month just for a one bedroom apartment.

I think it is a good idea for a space force. I wish they would of had that when I joined the Air Force in the early 2,000s. I would rather get deployed to space then Iraq or Afghan.:D

So tired of winning. Now instead of funding JPL, University of Arizona and SpaceX, US space contract money can go to Department of Defense heavyweights like Lockheed, GD and Boeing. Projects that used to cost millions will now cost billions. Oh and tack on a few years to every project timeline while you're at it. 😔

I graduated from Vallejo High School in 1979, while living on Mare Island Naval Ship Yard. Now the base is gone, and Vallejo is a crime-ridden shithole. But, yes, Travis and that area were nice. I started in the AF Reserves there.

Nice,small world.lol!

Last I was there was 2008 but I assume the crime is bad because of high housing costs and no jobs. Could be because people are lazy also.:D
