Colorado was never chosen period. It is a temporary HQ.It's not a theory or a conspiracy. Colorado Springs was chosen because of the Cheyenne Mountain Facility. Just having a robust Aerospace Industry isn't enough. Florida, and Houston would also be a much better choice than Alabama. Part of the Space Tracking is done by Cheyenne Mountain. They are part of the Space Tracking Grid and maintains the NORAD facility. Between Cheyenne Mountain and Nasa and others, they track all the space shots, Satellites, and even the space junk. Alabama gets to track the good ol' boy cop named Roy.This reeks of a conspiracy theory. Multiple locations were in play for the HQ. The Huntsville Al area has a long and strong aerospace history.On a side note: It's just been announced by the Rump Admin that they are moving Space Command from Colorado Springs, Co. to Alabama. It appears that Rump is doing just one more thing to screw with a state that didn't vote for him and another that did. Too bad he waited so long since what's done this late can be undone. No one can fathom a good reason for this considering Colorado Springs has the facilities and technology to directly support Space Command, ALA Cheyenne Mountain.
“This is a project that will have long generational legs for our community,” Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle said. “It’s the right decision to come to Huntsville. We have done space. We are space. We have done space since the 1950s. We have the Army Aviation Command here, we have Space & Missile Command here, we have the Missile Defense Agency here. All of it ties in to a workforce that is attuned to working in space and working with our space assets. I think it’s going to be a great thing for our community for yeas to come. Hats off to (U.S. Sen.) Richard Shelby. He did a great job with it.”
The command was established in the Air Force in 2019, and the search for a permanent headquarters began in 2020.
