FEATURING KARL GROSSMAN – The newly inaugurated US Space Force launched a mysterious mission on Sunday launching an unmanned test space plane called the X-37B which was built by Boeing. According to Reuters the launch is part of, “mission ‘America Strong’ to conduct power beaming tests, study radiation on crops and launch a satellite.”
President Trump on Friday triumphantly unveiled the new Space Force flag in the White House Oval Office in front of cameras – a flag that looks suspiciously like that of the Star Fleet flag in the popular sci-fi show Star Trek.
In fact in just days, a fictitious Netflix television program called Space Force will debut starring actor Steve Carrell, perhaps blurring the line between reality and fiction even more. Meanwhile nearly 90,000 Americans have died in just 7 weeks from the coronavirus pandemic.
