Last week on 22 September, the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) signed a memorandum with the Department of Defense (DOD). The signers were NASA’s administrator, Jim Bridenstine, and the U.S. Space Force Chief of Operations General, John Raymond.
The spirit of JFK’s space vision has certain come alive in new and exciting ways, but one question still remains unanswered: Does the U.S. have the ability to withstand the forces seeking to dissolve the republic and join a new open system paradigm?
If other civilizations exist, maybe it is our duty to take up the torch left to U.S. by JFK and go find them.
But a much unhappier fate may await our children and grandchildren which would make World War II look like a cake walk.
