Nobody anticipated the collapse of the Soviet Union (or expects the Spanish Inquisition (sarc)).  Though it was mostly a good thing I think.

It was not as unanticipated as you might think.  The Soviet Union was struggling for years.

But ... our CIA etc had no idea.  Guess they are just more incompetent government employees, right? (sarc).  The government employees I know, do the best they can under the circumstances.

I thought that's what Reagans "Star Wars" was all about? And our excessive military budget. Make the soviets try to keep up with us, spending so much money that the USSR couldn't help but collapse. If that's the case, then it was anything but unanticipated.

"Star Wars" never happened.  That was primarily pushed by Henry Kissinger.  I did know a guy, who was a proposal manager for a component of "Star Wars", but he lost the bid, and the winner never got to build anything.  At the time, not only was the US out-teching the USSR in some respects, they were losing their shirts in Afghanistan (as we are now).  However the X-37 is real ...

5th vehicle is currently in orbit, a space drone, not unlike the in-atmosphere drones that are so common today.

I suspect the move to develop a Space Service separate from the Air Force, is because it is too numerous and too classified to be handled by the Air Force.
