Now Space Force Wants To Take Over KSC

Space Force considers merging Cape Canaveral with Kennedy Space Center, Ars Technica

"Would NASA be willing to listen as well? The space agency administrator, Jim Bridenstine, said yes. "I'm glad to see big ideas being proposed such as a potential merger," he told Ars. "This, and other ambitious concepts for the future should all be given due consideration. However, such a proposed merger would require a great deal of work and effort. For the time being, NASA will continue to focus on enhancing the efficiencies and capabilities at our existing launch facility. Our team at KSC has already done a great job creating a thriving spaceport to serve both NASA and commercial needs."

Keith's note: Every time you turn around it seems that Space Force is trying to grab a piece of NASA's turf. First it was floating the idea of putting military soldiers in orbit and on the Moon, now they want to start grabbing NASA launch facilities. I get the whole efficiency thing but it sure sounds like Space Force is in the driver's seat on these ideas and NASA is playing catch-up in responding to them. The idea originated with Space Force because of their needs - not NASA's. NASA did not seek out this activity. Funny how everything works just fine for 60 years - then Space Force appears and starts to try and change everything to suit their needs. Just sayin'.
