Space Fence Could Be Shut Down

According to this article by Slashdot, the Airforce Space fence could be shut down. The Space fence is the only monitoring system of its kind that gives real-time information on tracking orbital debris. Part of the issue is a cut to the Pentagon's budget. It is interesting to see how much the space program has taken a hit from government cut backs. And it is alarming that something that is the only one of its kind would be shut down.
