( – President Biden has announced that the U.S. Space Command Headquarters is not going to be moved from Colorado to Alabama, despite the proposal supported by former president Donald Trump.

Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder revealed that Biden after consultations with senior military leaders and the U.S.  Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin decided that the current location of the Headquarters in Colorado Springs would continue as the permanent location of the headquarters. As he argued, by not moving the U.S. Space Command headquarters they could ensure that the country would continue to be in “peak readiness in the space domain.” He added that it would allow the command to create more effective plans for using military space power to protect national interests and “deter aggression.”

According to Senior U.S. officials, it was Gen. James Dickinson, the head of Space Command, that had convinced President Biden that relocating the facilities could potentially risk military readiness.

Air Force leadership however had also investigated this issue and they had believed that relocating to Huntsville, Alabama was going to be the correct move in the long run.

President Biden sided with Dickinson in this debate, claiming that by not moving the headquarters they could ensure military readiness, especially as the U.S. is competing with China in space. He argued that this will also allow the military to be better prepared for responding in space within the next decade, which he claimed would be far more important than any small benefits that could have existed because of a relocation.
