I imagine one of their first missions will be anti-satellite warfare.
“I imagine one of their first missions will be anti-satellite warfare.”
We have a robot space craft in the XB-47 that could be used to mine every enemy satellite in orbit. Just attach a nice little gift that can be remotely detonated.
If we haven’t already done it we are stupid.
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.
