Air Force Lt. Gen. Discusses Plan for ‘Domains’ in Other Galaxies
An exchange between an Air Force Lt. Gen. and the editor of aviation website FlightGlobal, recently yielded some interesting information about the military’s plans for future space operations. At one point in the conversation, Lt. Gen. VeraLinn Jamieson discusses the possibility of establishing man-made domains in other galaxies as soon as we’ve “freed our mind” to understand how we will utilize that space.
Lt. Gen. Jamieson is the highly decorated Deputy Chief of Staff for Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, and a strong proponent of investment in space-related military technology. With recent interest surrounding a “Space Force,” Jamieson has been vociferous in her belief that a greater military presence in space is necessary for the U.S. to maintain its global dominance.
But the recent interview with FlightGlobal’s Stephen Trimble insinuated that the military’s space program may be slightly more advanced than the public is aware. Either that or she made an embarrassing gaffe, not understanding just how far intergalactic space travel is thought to be from a reality – but if she heads Air Force intelligence, shouldn’t she know better than anyone?
According to the transcript posted on Trimble’s Twitter account, Jamieson seems to believe that the U.S. will have the ability to travel to other galaxies within the near future.
“I am convinced that there are more domains – man-made domains – that will come, and I would offer you that if we look at galaxies – sounds nuts – but there’s going to be a man-made domain in galaxies,” Jamieson said.
Trimble responded to her statement with confusion. “I don’t know what you mean – galaxies?” he said.
“Space has got different galaxies. And in those galaxies in the future we’re going to actually have capability that we have right now in the air,” she said. “We don’t know what it is because we haven’t freed our mind to think about what is that space and how we are going to utilize it. Space is contested. It’s going to happen.”
Speculation about a Secret Space Program has long been a topic of discussion within the Gaia community and now it seems this may be a subtle acknowledgement that one actually exists. To many it would come as no surprise, but if one of the highest-ranking members of the Air Force is suggesting that other galaxies will be attainable destinations within the near future, well then it seems we may be on the brink of an imminent disclosure.
Just for reference, the closest galaxy to us, Andromeda, is roughly 2.5 million light-years away. The nearest star Alpha Centauri, is 4.3 light-years away and according to NASA we’ve only barely made it out of our solar system. But who actually trusts NASA anymore, right?
If Jamieson’s comments are to be taken seriously, it would imply that travel within our own galaxy – a swath of space 100,000 light years wide – is completely within the realm of possibility and that the Air Force will soon be looking into intergalactic travel.
