I googled around a little and didn't find much detailed information on space ops in the AF, but it sounds like a really exciting career field for officers. It's my understanding that AFSPC officers (I think its AFSC is 13S but idk) direct the operation of satellites and plan missions. Does this mostly entail managing enlisted airmen like most other officer AFSCs, or can it be actually operating satellites, planning missions, and working on the control center floor during a launch? The actual operations are what I'm most interested in. Also, what does the path to becoming an AFSPC officer look like? What are the degree requirements, skill sets, and training like? I know USAFA used to offer a space operations major but it has been discontinued. I would assume the civilian applications for the space field are many since the commercial space industry has been growing so fast. Do space officers typically move on to similar jobs in industry? Watching SpaceX develop and test that reusable rocket has been awesome, and being part of something like that either in the AF or commercially would be pretty amazing.
