The United States Space Force, “after a yearlong process that produced hundreds of submissions and research involving space professionals and members of the general public,” announced a few minutes ago on Twitter that its personnel will be known as “Guardians.”

“A name chosen by space professionals, for space professionals”:

No, not these “Guardians”:

The name is a nod to the Air Force Space Command motto from 1983, “Guardians of the High Frontier”:

And the USSF says “the name Guardians connects our proud heritage and culture to the important mission we execute 24/7, protecting the people and interest of the U.S. and its allies”:

“Semper Supra!” (Always Above):

So, what do you think?
