The Air Force has announced six installations as candidate locations for the new U.S. Space Command.
According to a May 14 news release, the locations under consideration are: Buckley Air Force Base, CO; Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, CO; Peterson Air Force Base, CO; Redstone Arsenal, AL; Schriever Air Force Base, CO; and Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA.
CNN first reported on a draft of the list in April.
The service's next step is to conduct a site survey and analysis of each base and according to the release, expects to approve a preferred location this summer. Following that decision, the Air Force will perform an environmental analysis.
