Oh man, if you have five minutes, watch Scott Kelly going on Fox News today to politely say "ummm, wtf, no".

So then, while googling after watching the video, I see this headline. Fox News, everyone. Just in case we weren't clear on where we stood on that (we were). (And sorry)

edit: also, logo 1 (the third, in descending order) has the best design, imho. But the "Mars Awaits" one made me just fucking crack up. WTF are we going to send the military to Mars for? Holy hell, these idiots

I love that he legit calls out "space force swag." Because in case you missed it:

    As a way to celebrate President Trump’s huge announcement, our campaign will be selling a new line of gear.

    But first we have to make a final decision on the design we will use to commemorate President Trump’s new Space Force--and he wants YOU to have a say.

The logos are all terrible. They're terrible. You know this. I know this. We all know this.

Somewhere in the Trump Campaign HQ there's a designer with a student version of Adobe CC who was given three days to come up with six "Space Force" logos so he fired up some Ben Shapiro podcasts, loaded the 1975 NASA design standards manual on his iPad, wandered into the shitter and waited for inspiration to hit.

"Space force" is never going to happen. If it did, they'd have to deal with people who are used to having their own way with heraldry:

...and fuckin' weird-ass pseudoshuttle farting a tulip bulb in a forest ain't gonna cut it.
