    Sputnik wasn't about space exploration any more than any other nation's space exploration program started off as a simple matter of scientific mastery. The core of the early space programs were all about developing the best missile technology.

    A battlefront that Russia has not ceased to operate inside of, given that recent RF "nesting doll" military satellite.

    The Cold War has become the Hot Peace. Americans might have left the Cold War behind but Putin most certainly has not.

    I recommend that you read Garry Kasparov's recent writing on the subject.

    I'm not a conspiracy theory loon, I'm just paying attention.

    Edit: If you watch this video all the way through, please note that the date is November 2015, before Russian meddling was part of the perceived liberal agenda.

    Mitt Romney was right even if he wasn't able to explain why to an audience that let the Kremlin's activities fall out of their attention in favor of reality TV and all too common comfortable American complacency.

    America is on the fast track to becoming an empire whose political power relies on bread and circuses rather than facts or competency.

    Or, not, if you actually read the meat of the article, or have a modicum of common sense.

    After all this time of absolutely nothing, I'm beginning to think Space Force was a space farce.

    The moon wasn't built in a day. We had to wait for cinematography, at the very least.

    Good point. Now, if they put James Cameron on the job they'd have my respect.

    The production values in everything he makes are just incredible.

    I'm just saying, the teasers better be fucking great and they better show up soon or people are going to lose faith.

    It's been 2 years and we don't even have a trailer yet.
