Elon Musk offers $44 billion to buy Space Force

SIMI VALLEY, California — SpaceX CEO and Chief Twit Elon Musk has offered to buy the U.S. Space Force from the federal government for $44 billion.
When asked why he wanted to purchase the service, Musk shrugged and admitted he didn’t know what it did. “Maybe they have some spare parts or something we can use,” said Musk.
