Huh. Hadn't thought of that. Still, it sounds like the future of spaceflight will be in the commercial sector, not the government.

Yes, I hope it is commerical and not government, it will open a lot of jops for people, and I hear from the Discovery Chanel (nerd here) that there is a company that is looking in to space flights for vacations :) I hope that works for them, and the cost get down so I can do something like that in my life. Also oddly the Army has a bigger space program than the Air Force, just the Air Force is more know cause of what they do, the Army did the Space Stattion and the "Missile Defense Satellites" most of what the Army is doing in space is "Defense"

If you want to go into space, maybe you should join the Air Force.

Because, you know, they actually have a space program.

'Course you could go with NASA later but if you're doing this *because* you want to go to space you might as well do it directly.

my brother is in the Air Force, i rather not be considered a copy cat, ive also sworn i will go into the Marines, that and the Marines have better looking uniforms, and i can transfer to any other branch and retain rank, and skip basic. (as ive been told) also i think it was the 2nd guy (U.S.) to go into space, 1st was Navy. (U.S.)

This is kinda true, if you do Marine Boot, youll never do boot/basic again, and you can keep rank going in to the Army, the Air Force however will not take prior duty soldiers/marines...

i dont plan on changing branches anyway, but in the event i did i would go with the Navy, that is of course i decide to change branches.

Yes, thats because the Marines are not a DOD department (like Army Navy Air Force) they are a Department of The Navy. so you are kinda in the Nave anyway

Soldiers of the Sea, United States Marines. i also like Navy Uniforms, and taking off from and landing on a aircraft carrier is a fine skill, so then after serving (possibility of space) i wouldnt mind having a job flying cargo or people for UPS or an airline.

See thats good a lot of people dont have any goals. the Military is good at helping people fix that

First off, the Army most certainly did not do the International Space Station. Which is a civilian operation ran by NASA.

And I'm pretty sure Air Force Space Command has a lot more equipment in space than the Army does. We've got the GPS constellation which has 31 satellites, the Defense Satellite Communications System constellation which is another dozen (This constellation the Army does actually have a hand in helping to run), six in the Milstar constellation (That's another communications network), the DSP constellation (Which is the of the missile defense constellations) has at least a dozen, and a couple other constellations I'm sure I'm forgetting.

Unless you mean another missile defense constellation I'm unaware of- I'm pretty sure they didn't do that either. For the record, Army Space Command is located on an Air Force Base. While Army Space and Missile Defense command consists of a few brigades, AFSPC is the size of around four divisions. Mind you, the Army does have a couple of labs dedicated to developing things to put on satellites.

That said- actually going into space is a much more technically oriented thing now a days than it once was. And AFSPC, while conducting several launches a year, launches satellites only. Manned space flight for the US is a NASA thing- admittedly with a good number of military personnel taking part. If you seriously want to go into space, the military probably isn't the way to do it. Unless as a pilot, you are literally the best at everything- ever. Your honest to goodness best bet? Find an engineering pursuit that's space related, and work your ass off in that field.

As for landing in a carrier- I'm fully confident of my ability to take off under my own power, land in a crosswind, and flare. :p

Took the ASVAB today bwaha, scored a 75. C: Can join any branch, but apparently USAF is not recruiting at this time?

The Air Force is always taking in new people. The thing is though, that presently the Air Force has more people applying to join than it needs. Which means that they can pick and choose who they decide to take.
 
We served in Iraq hauling freight, ammo, and mechanical parts out of LSA Anaconda Spring 2005 through 2006. We drove over 2 million miles in 11 months.

Are you serious about the 2 million mile thing? And if so, were there multiple vehicles racking up mileage at the same time making it like a combined total?

Yeah that sounds about right, we did a lot of miles too (convoy security and detainee escort here) I drove all over Iraq, and even did a flight in to Turkey... shhh cant talk about that one

Personnelist in the AF here. I recently passed 5 years in, with one more to go. I think I may go for a couple extra years. I haven't really decided if I want to make this a career. I also want to try to retrain/crosstrain.

I'm currently typing from Haiti's tent city on my first deployment. It's very slow on the swings, so if there's anyone else down here right now, come talk to me in the JRC tent!

Note: It's funny that I'm actually able to see this website. Just yesterday it was restricted.

A personnelist who's managed to survive for five years? I think the highest two we have on base are a staff sergeant and a second lieutenant!

Heh, to be fair, the first two of those 5 years were bopping around two other failed tech schools (linguist and 1N0). So technically, I've only been in for three. XD

Huh, I got a friend that went into the Canadian Army reserve (if I'm not mistaken..).
Met him on the ps3 and I'm not 100% sure what branch but I'm fairly certain it was the army.


He wouldn't happen to be a furry would he? ^.^ Canada needs more military furs.
