    Apparently, the authors of the article are unaware of actual goings on.

    NORAD no longer exists. It's functions have been assumed by the First Aerospace Command based at Peterson AFB in Colorado Springs, with the actual facilities and equipment located at Falcon Air Station, miles outaside the city near Peyton, Colorado.

    The Cheyenne Mountain Complex has been closed down and now serves only as a tourist attraction, while the nearby housing developments and cheap aprtments have crept up almost to the parking lot outside the primary entrance tunnel.

      What happened to Professor Falken's W.O.P.R. supercomputer? They replaced it so quickly?

        Which is a shame, IMHO.

        The costs of running said installation were actually far cheaper regarding energy consumption.
