Will “Space Force” Militarize Space?

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, wants to create a new branch ​_of the military with equal but separate powers with the air-force. He calls it "Space Force." I don't think this sounds like a good idea. Are we now going to militarize space? The Internet is already producing thousands of images to... Continue Reading →

How will space be used for military purposes in the future?

It already is being used for military purposes right now as in spy satellites. Even very recently SpaceX was tasked to launch a U.S. spy satellite into orbit but it exploded and the satellite didn’t make it. In 1984 a Titan 34D rocket launched the KH-9 and KH-11 satellites for “reconnaissance,” and the DSP-2-6R satellite for missile detection. The list just starts there and goes... Continue Reading →

President Trump did something Presidential

In one of the first "Presidential" things our President has done since he took office, Trump seems to be on the verge of having a summit with the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, and I have to give Trump credit for doing that.

There’s been a shift in tone from the U.S. Department of Defense, and it has some in Congress downright spooked.

“It’s time to take Trump seriously as he keeps hinting, over and over, that he wants to go to war with North Korea,” tweeted Sen. Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut. “Many of us have begun to hear whispers of more serious war talk in and near the White House. ‘Calm before the storm’ comment sent chills. Timing of Corker’s comments, referencing possibility of World War III, might not be accidental.”

In a conversation with Vox’s Ezra Klein, Murphy further explains his trepidation. It’s a chilling dialogue.
