Kern County Supervisors have approved a resolution supporting President Trump’s proposed Space Force. They want a part of it based in Kern, with Mick Gleason pointing out Tuesday there’s lots of advantages to being based here. “We have Edwards Air Force base with a history of aviation breakthroughs and innovation, we have China Lake, which is a phenomenal science and research development capability.” Gleason was Commander at China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station before being elected to the Board, he says the resolution puts the county on the President’s radar when he forms Space Force.
