    From the article linked below...
    To develop a proper and winning Space Force, the President and Congress should immediately enact four simple measures:
    • Congress should assign the Space Force the mission to defend commerce in space and define Cis-Lunar space (Earth to Moon) as an area of responsibility in the Unified Command Plan.
    • Congress should give the Space Force complete independence from the U.S. Air Force so that funds are not diverted from the former to the latter, and so that the Space Force isn’t developed as a mere support function for air power.
    • The President should issue an executive order protecting the space industry from China’s predatory practices.
    • The President should promote policies and strategies to maximize the contribution of the private sector, such as directing the Space Development Agency to partner with private companies to develop new space capabilities.
    If development of the Space Force continues along the lines of what is currently planned, America will lose the strategic space race to China. This must not be allowed to happen. Our elected leaders must take action now.

    I remember in the 1960 Presidential campaign, JFK made a lot of noise about the missile gap, and so forth because Sputnik (1957) showed the Russians were ahead of us. But of course, in the next decade, our German rocket-men proved superior to their German rocket-men, so Project Apollo put us at the forefront of space exploration. To this day, more than 50 years later, the most powerful engine ever made by man is the Saturn Five. Not bad for a steam engine. :)
