  1. what is the point of spending so much resources to protect us from outer space, and barely do nothing to protect us from Russian cyber attack, increasing natural disasters, and damn poverty. this is stupid. has been stupid. and will always be stupid. Just look the threat we face right now. We have become a turtle in the shell, strong on the outside and weak in the inside. you might be immune to rock being thrown from the above, but you are weak to disease.

  2. US military engineering at it's best . I can't wait to sign up with the air force. I was gonna focus on the marine core but the marine core won't be a a Real need until we start forming space fleets to start building outposts ,settlements on planets, moons . Space our milky way is a door to many new jobs which I can't wait but about time that all comes in play I would be 60 something retired from the air force. My gen is to make sure no one hits the red button and pretty much set up the next gen with the tools to attack the galaxy's crazy goals and future missions for humanity untied or not. Humans will be in control of the milky way .
    Long comment but yes this is a very nice info video on our guys in the air force brain seats . I'm pretty sure it would be touge to get assign to mos at that based underground. I love the tech the big ops but I'm more of a airfield guy or prefer to provide security at airsrips. I just can't see myself stuck underground for 12-15 hours straight .
    Anyways cool video , one more reason why the air force is a good pick if you want to learn mad skills in tech or eng . All branches are good . I feel the air force will lead me to space .
