Response to Flaleftist (Reply #31)

45. I recall when the Space Force and the Space Command were designated as such and

have been around for awhile now. I read about these agencies in my local newspaper so they weren't a mystery to me. Their names may have changed but some of what they do, they've been doing for decades. I recall reading when their names were changed, and the purpose of designating them as the Space Command and the Space Force, back when they did a while back. I assumed it was because the missions they were performing were growing in scope as technology developed, and the change in designation (my guess) was to recognize that change in the scope of their mission by putting them on par with other branches of the military.

Also, much of what has been done by those two commands in the recent past is likely cutting edge technology, and often highly classified, I presume; so it probably doesn't get much public scrutiny. But I can recall reading about up and coming projects in various publications; and particularly the renaming of the Space Command and the Space Force, and I live in an area where occasionally you might see strange objects in the sky at night; so it's never been a mystery to me.
