The U.S. Space Force officially revealed its logo this week, and the military announced that its motto is “semper supra,” or “always above.” This represents the Air Foce service branch’s role in establishing, maintaining and preserving U.S. freedom of operations in the space domain. Sure, it may look like the Star Trek logo, but in reality, the delta was first used in space organizations as early as 1961 and inspired generations of industry professionals.
What does the US Space Force overlook currently? Well, if you’ve heard of the highly classified Boeing X-37B, that is one of their assets. The low-profile missions it’s currently undertaking represent a significant U.S. orbital asset. Its latest mission, USA-277, which was launched on September 7, 2017 and landing October 27, 2019, was the longest X-37 mission to date at 780-days.
