NASA Could Get a Raise Next Year to Help Fund a 2024 Human Trip to the Moon

For decades, NASA has been the kid politely asking for a raise in its allowance. Time was NASA’s pocket money was huge. Go back 54 years, to 1966, and the space agency was getting $5.9 billion a year—which would be a tidy $47 billion in 2020 dollars. That represented 4.1% of America’s annual household budget. But in 1966 there was also a bully on the block, whose mailbox at the time read “the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.” They were racing the U.S. to be the first to leave the block ...

Jeff Bezos aims Blue Origin at the Moon

Today at a packed event blocks from the White House, Jeff Bezos took the stage in front of select members of the media, executives, government officials and a gaggle of middle schoolers to reveal new details of his plan to get to the Moon by 2024.  Blue Origin is going to send humans to space on New Shepard later this year and has unveiled a lunar lander, called “Blue Moon”, to access the resource-rich lunar surface, Bezos said. Setting the stage with Neil Armstrong’s famous words as the...

Threat of A Chinese Internet Requires “Action this Day”

Opinion Threat of A Chinese Internet Requires “Action this Day” USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- What will it be like if the internet America invented and designed is replaced in the next technological cycle by one that is controlled, developed, implemented, and managed by the Chinese? This is a real possibility we must confront – right now. The danger of America giving up and allowing the Chinese to win was driven home by a senior United States government official this week. The Washington Post publi...

Changing the Bureaucracy: Vice President Pence’s 5 Rules for Effective Government

Opinion Mike Pence USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- It is extraordinarily difficult to change bureaucracies and the bureaucrats who work in them. Again and again, we have seen presidents and congresses start out boldly, using big words to dramatically describe big ideas, only to have the ideas disappear in the impenetrable resistance of career bureaucrats. The dense thickets of regulations they have cultivated over the last 80 years make management and change virtually impossible. The resistance of th...

NASA is going to need more money to make Trump’s Moon dreams a reality

Last week, Donald Trump sent Mike Pence to relay a message to NASA demanding that the agency speed up its timeline for landing crewed missions on the lunar surface for the first time in decades. Pence's address to the National Space Council was clear and to-the-point, but it was also completely unrealistic and probably won't actually change anything.Nevertheless, NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine -- who was appointed by Trump shortly after he took office -- is going to try to make it ha...

Trump desperately wants the US in another space race that simply doesn’t exist

Donald Trump threw NASA for a loop shortly after taking office when he directed them to find a way to get humans back on the Moon. Putting astronauts on the Moon is obviously easier said than done, but NASA has been piecing together how such a mission might work ever since.Now, at a meeting of the National Space Council in Alabama this week, Trump ordered Mike Pence to light a fire under NASA and speed up the process. Repeatedly pointing out that he was essentially relaying the wishes of Trump, ...

White House budget proposal tightens the screws on science, from space to salmon

The White House’s $4.7 trillion spending plan for fiscal year 2020 aims to give a boost to the Space Force, but would dial down work on NASA’s Space Launch System, zero out the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope, leave salmon in the lurch and slash science spending on other fronts. When it comes to outer space, the brightest spotlight falls on lunar exploration and space commercialization — which is in line with the priorities of the National Space Council, headed by Vice President Mike Pence....

SpaceX Launches Air Force's Most Powerful GPS Satellite Ever Built

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket roared to life and streaked away from Cape Canaveral early Sunday carrying the first in a powerful new generation of GPS navigation satellites into orbit. It was the California rocket builder's 21st launch this year and its first Pentagon-sanctioned national security mission. From a report: Propelled by 1.2 million pounds of thrust from its nine first stage engines, the 229-foot-tall rocket lifted off at 8:51 a.m. EST (GMT-5), climbing straight away from launch complex 4...

The White House is unsure about Trump's idea of a separate Space Force

The White House does not appear to be certain on how it will implement Space Force.

Russia will be ready to resume Soyuz flights soon, NASA says

It's only been a couple of weeks since Russia's Soyuz rocket launch towards the International Space Station ended abruptly due to an unspecified failure, sending the two passengers back down to Earth, where they landed safely. NASA immediately offered a show of support for the Russian space program and said things would work themselves out in short order. That confidence appears to have been well-placed, as NASA's administrator Jim Bridenstine now says that Soyuz rocket launches are ...

Space Force plan moves forward amid heightened talk about final-frontier fights

The National Space Council today pushed forward recommendations to raise the profile of military space activities, at first through a combined U.S. Space Command and eventually through a separate Space Force. Vice President Mike Pence, the council’s chairman, argued that more military resources will have to be directed toward space, in part due to challenges from China and Russia. “Today, space is fundamentally different than it was a generation ago,” he said. “What was once desolate and unconte...

Trump's 'Space Force' to be built in stages by 2020

A new US "Space Force" will soon take shape but will at least initially be a step below the proposed sixth branch of the military envisioned by President Donald Trump, his vice president said Tuesday.

Astronaut Mark Kelly says Trump's plan to create a Space Force 'is a dumb idea'

President Donald Trump's administration hopes to create a sixth division of the military called the Space Force. Mark Kelly, a retired NASA astronaut, tweeted in June that it's "a dumb idea." The US Air Force already has a Space Command and a space force. President Donald Trump and his administration are angling to create a Space Force, a sixth branch of the military that sounds straight out of a sci-fi movie. On Tuesday, Vice President Mike Pence set a deadline for its creation: "Our admi...

President Trump's Space Force prepares for launch

President Donald Trump’s call for a “Space Force” may sound like something out of this world, but it’s set to come one step closer to reality this week when the Pentagon is expected to deliver to Congress its plans to strengthen the Defense Department’s space efforts. The expected report comes after President Trump made a surprise announcement during a National Space Council meeting in June that he was directing the military to undertake the galactic mission.

The Moon Landing and Our Lost Half-Century

Opinion The Moon Landing and Our Lost Half-Century USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Forty-nine years ago, this week, we had every reason to believe that Neil Armstrong’s “small step for [a] man,” was in fact the first part of a “giant leap for mankind.”At the time, it was reasonable to expect that our space program would continue to move at the pace of the Apollo program. It was, therefore, reasonable to think that by 2018 we would have four to five colonies on the Moon, space-based outposts in variou...
