    Space Force

    So Donald Trump made a speech today that we will be having a 6th military branch called the Space Force. Orders have been placed to the Pentagon to create it. In the new Space Force, it will be used not just to protect Americans while in space, but to do interplanetary travel, colonizing the moon, colonizing asteroids, etc. All of our current out of date space technology will be modernized. Ladies and gentlemen, Star Trek is real.

    I guess Trump just lost the Flat-Earth vote.

    Probably not. Wasn't there some guy who swore he was going to put a rocket up to prove once and for all whether the earth was round? I forget who that was.

    Re: Space Force

    At first I assumed JR was kidding but it turns out it's true. My first reaction was "there goes crazy Donald again" but, actually it's probably no bad thing. Putting the silly name aside I've always felt anything that encourages space exploration is a good thing.

    I'm uneasy that it's a branch of the military, though. I'd rather have just seen increased funding and focus for NASA.

    They'd just waste it more climate change propaganda though.

    In the new Space Force, it will be used not just to protect Americans while in space
    Protect Americans while out in space, from who exactly? Aliens

    to do interplanetary travel
    Didn't NASA already do that, and if they wont give NASA the necessary billions to do it why would they suddenly give it to some new agency that has no experience doing it? (bare in mind that Trump will have to go to the Senate and Congress too fund this)

    colonizing the moon, colonizing asteroids
    Yeah right that would cost even more that the interplanetary travel stuff.

    This Space force has been created so they can make some nice new uniforms and Trump can call himself Commander In Space

    Re: Space Force

    Yeah, when I first read the thread title, I thought JR was getting into Disney movies. I didn't recognize that one, but then again, I'm not into Disney movies. The title does sound like some kid-friendly PG movie.

    Re: Space Force

    I suspect this has far less to do with manned exploration, astronomical platforms and probes, near-Earth orbit manufacturing research, or commercial satellite operations than it does military satellite operations.

    It is probably related to the XS-1 "Phantom Express" semi-autonomous reusable satellite launch platform more than anything else right now. This seems to be the X-37B test vehicle's successor and is supposed to be coming online in 2020. Operating these delivery vehicles, the military satellite network, and ground-based support operations are probably the primary mission of this comically named "Space Force."

    Re: Space Force

    I dont blame Trump for creating a Space Force. Russia and China already has one. And had it since the 1990s. They are already winning the space race. On top of that, a lot of new technologies have been supressed by our own government, and Trump is having these secrets declassified and utilized. Imagine such technologies such as Warp Drive, Wormhole, Phasers, etc., all becoming a reality.

    Since January 2017, NASA is already planning on a mission to asteroid that contains so much iron, it is worth, I kid you not, 10000 quadrillion dollars. Asteroid mining is but within a decade away. And doing this could solve the worlds debt crisis and technologies don't have to be "cock blocked" due to funding, which is why we are but slowely progressing.

    Re: Space Force

    Saw a documentary recently.
    I never imagined that the shadows of the sun over moon surfaces can go to different angles at the same time.
    The moon landing was staged and anyhow NASA astronauts accidental admitted it.
    So it would probably be a round the earth space force, colonizing satellites
    Slow as hell.

    Re: Space Force

    I wouldn't mind to be reborn in a couple of millenniums and be a professional pilot into a spaceship but right now and probably for more than you can think of, it cannot be done.
    We still don't have a craft that can fly properly into space without using a rocket or another form of fuel that will last or recycle. Or at least a couple of Klingon crystals.
    At least nowadays, it is possible to use the force and move objects, paper...Every time i go to the bathroom.

    Re: Space Force

    Just like every other one of Trump's endeavors this will be just another farce...a "Space Farce"...

    I can see it now; if you land on the moon illegally the space farce will separate you from your children

    Re: Space Force

    There's nothing new about this. I don't remember Obama coming up with some nutty idea about space, but everybody before him did back through at least Reagan. None of them were more than talk. It was just vision, and vision is cheap. The reality is not cheap, so that doesn't happen.

    Surely Trump will just build a wall in space and get the Martians to pay for it.

    This is not right.It's using Sabre, so it will launch right out of Concordia, so it will not be on earth gravity when flying.
