Default Is the Space Force Secure?

I am NOT a Trump supporter,and would not have pushed for a Space Force
just yet,but now that there is one I would rather not see it dissolved
by a Biden administration just because it was Trump's initiative.

Does it seem likely that such a punitive action would be taken?

There would have to be a rational reason that would convince the Senate
not to override the action, and doubling the money already spent
creating the SF (by having to spend to undo things) doesn't seem a good
idea without more being achieved.

I suspect that there were people in the Pentagon who thought this was a
good idea even before Trump "thought it up", and perhaps they now have
sufficient consensus to keep it going.

Biden's role is likely to be deciding who wins in turf disputes about
specific systems, commands, or policies when the AF and the SF can't
come to an agreement.

Side note: one explanation I encountered long ago for the lack of
German carriers in WWII was that the Luftwaffe didn't want anyone else
controlling planes.

All governmnets will be stuck with huge post COVID debts. **IF** Having
a seperate branch of military ends up costing more in overhead etc than
re-integrating it to where it was before, I am guessing it could be
done. I suspect the "Space Force" being more public is a problem to the
military who may not want "Space Force" to handle its intelligence
satellites, so Space Force may be just management of GPS satellites.

It might be interesting to see it go into NASA if, at the end of the
day, all it does is pub lic non military applicatiosn such as GPS.


The Space Force claims it is streamlining and cutting out layers
of management.But it's smaller than an Army Corps that is headed
by one three-star general,and has apparently two four-star and
six three-star billets.
