  1. This is good news, as a guy who has been in the military and civilian space biz since 1978 I am glad to see some multinational cooperation. I worked very closely with our Canadian allies at the NORAD Cheyenne Mountain Complex (starting in 1978!) in space object tracking. We had a number of Canadian officers working with us and they were marvelous and brought a LOT of talent to the effort.
