The Space Race

The U.S. needs to improve its satellite presence in the Southern Hemisphere to better track launches from Asia, even as officials work to improve relations with Beijing, according to U.S. military officials. The Associated Press reports, Air Force Gen. Kevin Chilton, head of U.S. Strategic Command, said the U.S. wants to better understand where China is heading as it improves its space and satellite capabilities. Chilton, who met with senior Chinese military leaders last week, described strains on the Pentagon's space program that are forcing commanders to push satellites and other equipment beyond their designed life span and to press for schedules that allow no room for launch failures.

Don't Ask - Don't Tell

University of California researchers show that lesbians were discharged under the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy at a much higher rate than gay men. Reuters reports every military branch dismissed a disproportionate number of women in 2008 under the policy banning openly gay service members. But the discrepancy was particularly marked in the Air Force, where women were a majority of those let go under the policy, even though they made up only 20 percent of personnel.
