[quote:nutmeg:MV8yMzIwMDczXzM5NjA5NDgwXzcwNzFENUQ4] Obama family and friends need the money for more vacations? ...... The USAF’s ‘Space Fence’ Surveillance System: Another Victim of Sequestration "Times are getting tougher in the battle to track space debris. A key asset in the fight to follow and monitor space junk is getting the axe on October 1st of this year. United States Air Force General and commander of Air Force Space Command William Shelton has ordered that the Air Force Space Surveillance System, informally known as Space Fence will be deactivated. The General also directed all related sites across the southern United States to prepare for closure." http://www.universetoday.com/104072/the-usafs-space-fence-surveillance-system-another-victim-of-sequestration/ [/quote]
This is mind boggling stupid, to save 14 million they are shutting down the space surveillance system that tracks objects in space.
"The U.S. Air Force will shut down its space surveillance system that tracks satellites and other orbiting objects by October 1 due to budget constraints"
Obviously they don't feel the need to track objects past October 1st.
I'd say something is up, they getting ready to bug out, and they don't want anyone to know about the incomings.
