Space Force!

A Quirky and Opinionated Look at America's Newest Military Service

The United States Space Force has a noble mission—to protect America, to support our allies, and to support our nation’s interest as we, along with  other nations, move out into the little patch of the universe that is our home system.

The desire to establish a US Space Force has been around for decades, in both science fiction and in the minds of people who attempt to seriously consider what our nation needs in order to deter future wars (and if necessary, to fight and win them). As an institution, the US Space Force has gotten off to a shaky start; however, prolific space writer Taylor Dinerman has great confidence that someday soon, it will find the right leadership and eventually be emancipated from the Department of the Air Force. At that point, the institution can begin to truly serve the great cause of creating a spacefaring civilization—as it was always meant to.

Taylor Dinerman is a senior editor at the Gatestone Institute in New York. He is also a well-known and respected space writer regarding military and civilian space activities. From 1999 through 2003, Dinerman ran SpaceEquity.com. Taylor Dinerman has now been writing for a variety of publications, including Ad Astra, The Wall Street Journal, the National Review, and The American Spectator. He was a weekly contributor for Jeff Foust’s Space Review. Dinerman’s articles on a wide range of important space topics can be read at www.thespacereview.com. He is the author of Space Sciences for Students and is a part-time consultant for the US Defense Department.
