There has been a so-called space race ever since space began to be explored, military fears never ceased they just became more of a reality...we didn't even get serious about it until SDI under Reagan...then withering on the vine under Bush 41 and Clinton...slightly revitalized under Bush 43 and largely ignored by Obama...while China and Russia forged forward.

Not sure we'll see anything like the Thunderbirds anytime soon...but stuff like this has always been a matter of when not if.  Resource-driven as much as national security driven...but then again if the DeepState wins out it may be all moot and the budget battles may abort much of it anyway...and if pooh hits the fan nobody will care one way or another...
Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*
