U.S. Government In Space

July 29 marked the 59th anniversary of the signing of the National Aeronautics and Space Act (which created NASA) by President Eisenhower.

A recent question for government operations in space: the launch (pun intended) of a new military division, the “U.S. Space Corps.” The controversial idea has both its supporters and detractors at all levels.

Fun fact: there’s already a Wikipedia page.
