Jackie Orr, associate professor of sociology in the Maxwell School comments on President Trump’s thoughts on developing a “Space Force” in the opinion piece, “Trump’s Astronomically Misguided ‘Space Force’.”
Jackie Orr refers to the former president, George W. Bush, when discussing the “Space Force.” She explains how Bush mentioned every U.S civilian being a soldier after the 9/11 tragedy. She goes on to say that the duties of an American-soldier will extend to outer space, “…the final, fantastic frontier for the U.S. military’s imaginary and material battlefields,” says Orr.
