Over the last four years, the United States has taken great strides in the domain of space. The Department of Defense has been reorganized to add a new service and a new combatant command whose collective focus is the warfighting domain of space. NASA was given new strategic guidance for human exploration of space and funding to make it happen. This year alone, the commercial sector will more than double the number of launches made from US soil in a single year. On-demand, low cost space access is closer to reality than ever before.
Those gains should be celebrated, as they have put the United States on a trajectory to dominate all other nations in this critical domain. During the next four years America must use its current momentum to ensure the noble ends of security, exploration, and access are achieved for both the United States and the free world.
