"Stay tuned folks. Watch what is happening with Blue Origin as well as Space X. Also keep an eye on what is happening in China. We about done with being just ordinary Terrins (Earth Dwellers)."
Okay - this is not a Twilight Zone article this time, so settle down. I want to talk about the reality of what the President wants to do, and why. A Space Force. Truthfully? This is something which time has come. Not yesterday - but decades ago. Why to I say that? Wernher von braun was about ready to set up a space fleet when he was a Major in the SS during WWII. He at least helped get us to the Moon in the 1960's. After that, we should have colonized the Moon in the 1980's, and Mars in the early 2000's. Today, we should be mining asteroids. Instead we sit here on Planet Earth with a fleet of dead shuttles.
What gives? Are we going to finish the job, or what? Now that - is a very good question indeed. In the series Star Trek, the Federation ships had a science officer on board. However, in the Space Force which is being proposed, it is sounding more like Star Troopers, than Star Trek. This is how to explore space? Blast them, before they blast us?
So what in the world is Trump trying to do? Keep up with the Elon Musk's and Jeff Bezo's type of inventors?. Don't worry - there are many more inventors where they came from. Why is that ? We suck at exploring. We were good for a while, but then we slacked off. Exploring took a back seat. For example, today we only understand 5% of or ocean. What? You have to be kidding me! True fact, and it gets worse. And only a fraction of the Moon. Beyond the Moon? Our knowledge could be put in a thimble.
So, here is the $64,000 question. Why not just juice up NASA some more? This is their territory, right? Yes, it is (or was). But NASA has turned out to be wussies. Timid. To go where no man has gone before? Ya, right!. So we need some Marine type explorers with a mission and a purpose. NASA can catch up when they find out what has happened with their 'Low T".
NASA can catch up with the Space Force. In 2025, there will be so many changes to our world, the discoveries by the Space Force will only be some of them. I have said before, everything will change. So let me say this again - EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE! It will be a exciting new world, a brave new world. Space Force will be only one of the layers which will be changing everything.
Stay tuned folks. Watch what is happening with Blue Origin as well as Space X. Also keep an eye on what is happening in China. We about done with being just ordinary Terrins (Earth Dwellers). We are coming back into space, and soon. Get ready folks - this will be part of the change we will see as we move into the 2020's. Will there be more to come? Oh, yes - there will be. That and more.
