I read an article a few days ago surrounding the possibility for a new branch of the military being founded. This new branch would be a part of the Air Force, just like the Marines fall under the Navy Department. What would this new branch focus around you ask? Space defense. Yes, you read that correctly, space defense. If this new branch is given the go-ahead by lawmakers it would begin in 2019, giving current Aerospace Engineering students such as myself and others a big opportunity to be a part of the next golden age of space exploration.
