Anchorage tried to get the Olympics in 1992 and 1994 and failed. It tried for the Olympics in 2026. But now Alaska's largest town is going for the gold: The new United States Space Command.

The governor said that Alaska has "a vibrant military and veteran community, strategic geopolitical locaiton, tremendous venues for training, and the Alaska Aerospace Corporation for collaboration."
