Yes indeed, this is the game. I am a contractor in the national security space arena--and "defensive space control" is the focus of my work.
Because of sensitive sources and methods--and the distraction of shampeachment--the public simply is not informed of the dangerous developments going on. But I will mention something that is publicly acknowledged:
Back in March, India conducted a successful live missile shot against a target satellite in low-earth orbit. There is a space arms race going on--and almost no one is paying attention to it.
I am totally psyched about Space Force.
In response to another response, because Space Force is a new service within the Department of the Air Force, it is almost certain that USAFA will be a primary source for Space Officers.
I can see anti-satellite missiles on ships, too. Mobile and the oceans are huge.
Maybe even submarine launched. Which would be a new mission for ballistic subs.
