US Air Force to place cyber operations under Space Command

The Air Force says it will back off its ambitious plan to set up a separate command for cyber space and has opted to place those operations within an existing organization.That decision, made by the service’s top leadership at a meeting last week, is part of a major restructuring of the Air Force, which includes forming a new command for its nuclear mission, a backwater since the Cold War, that will operate much like the Strategic Air Command, which managed that mission in the Cold War.
