    Yup. Rights covered by a penumbra of some sort. So you'd have to ask the Supremes.

    Excellent question. This as close as the article came to answering it:

    Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is urging federal officials to locate U.S. Space Command headquarters at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the surrounding Dayton area.

    DeWine sent a letter to the assistant secretary of the Air Force on Tuesday, endorsing a nomination submitted by Beavercreek Mayor Bob Stone. Area county commissioners and mayors have signed on in support of the nomination.

    The U.S. Space Command headquarters are temporarily located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Air Force and Department of Defense began accepting nominations for a permanent site in May; a selection announcement is expected in early 2021.

    To qualify to host command headquarters, communities must be based within the 150 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S., located within 25 miles of a current military base and have an AARP livability score of at least 50.

    States have until the end of the month to submit nominations. Nominations will be judged on the available workforce, infrastructure, community support and cost.

    U.S. Space Command is the combat arm of the U.S. Space Force, which is headquartered in the Pentagon with other services. President Donald Trump announced the creation of the Space Force, the country's sixth armed service, in 2018.

    I doubt a document written 240 yrs ago says anything about space flight. It's probably not something that's been addressed

    WPAFB is an interesting place to work. There is a lot of talent there. Back in the day, I wrote computer simulations. Ejection seats (Articulated Total Body, still in use today for many applications) and countermeasure detection for seeker heads on laser guided bombs. Interesting stuff, but it was for the government which moves veeerrryyy sloooowwwllly. I was an ambitious young man and moved on. Now I work for an insurance company LOL.

    WPAFB was literally my backyard when I was growing up. Never lived more than a few miles from the museum. Would be good if they got it.

    Thank you. I wonder if Grissom ARB in Bunker Hill, IN fits the criteria?
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    I would like to think that it, at least, it has been thought about.

    Likely not. It'd be highly unusual for a combatant command to put their HQ on a reserve base.

    Netflix made a good prediction by putting their version in Colorado. I'd have to think it's going to go to Schriever AFB, since it's heavily focused on space already (and not knowing if they applied to host it). Peterson would be another obvious candidate if it didn't already host NORTHCOM.

    And even though WPAFB has some units that transferred to the Space Force, it's primarily focused on air research and materiel, is host to a MAJCOM (AFMC), and is the largest by personnel in the USAF. I'm also trying to think where they could put such a facility. Maybe on Area A next to the hospital and the 9-hole Prairie Trace golf course? Area B is pretty full and has a terrible parking situation.

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    A Massive Star Has Disappeared Without a Trace

    An unusually bright star has gone missing, in a mystery of cosmic proportions.

    An object inside the Kinman dwarf galaxy has disappeared from view, according to new research published today in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. This massive and exceptionally bright blue star was hypothesized to exist based on astronomical observations made between 2001 and 2011, but as of 2019, it is no longer detectable.

    First image of a multi-planet system around a sun-like star

    The European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (ESO's VLT) has taken the first ever image of a young, sun-like star accompanied by two giant exoplanets. Images of systems with multiple exoplanets are extremely rare, and—until now—astronomers had never directly observed more than one planet orbiting a star similar to the sun. The observations can help astronomers understand how planets formed and evolved around our own sun.
