"We do things differently," said Charles Bolden, a retired Marine Corps major general who served as a pilot in Vietnam and as a NASA astronaut. "But our space activities give us a common foundation. Whether you work for NASA or the Army, space is important to our nation. It is critical."

He has very interesting thoughts of the future of space," Bolden said.

    Aug 28, 2009

Speaking to participants at the 12th annual Space and Missile Defense Conference at the Von Braun Center on Aug. 18, Air Force Gen. Kevin Chilton said the U.S. is operating in a "multi-polar environment with new threats and adversaries that challenge us. It makes us look at offense and defense in a different light." Chilton, a veteran astronaut of three space flights and the first former astronaut to receive four-star rank, is responsible for the global command and control of U.S. strategic forces to meet decisive national security objectives. The Strategic Command provides a broad range of strategic capabilities and options for the president and secretary of defense. STRATCOM mission areas include full-spectrum global strike; space operations; computer network operations; Department of Defense information operations; strategic warning; integrated missile defense, global command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; combating weapons of mass destruction; and specialized expertise to the joint war fighter.
