In the late 1940s the U.S. Air Force embraced the use of space as a natural extension of its traditional air power mission. As such, they envisioned air and space mediums converging into a single operational domain. Dr. Kalic will lecture on the U.S. Air Force’s development of the Aerospace concept in the period 1946-1963.
