Our cameras were the first to ever go inside the U.S. Space Command Joint Operations Center, where the U.S. tracks launches around the world to monitor the threat level. The facility is notified “almost immediately” of rocket or missile launches around the world, Lt. Gen. John Shaw told NBC News’ Tom Costello. Gen. James Dickinson, SpaceCom’s commander, spoke exclusively to NBC News about a Russian satellite launched into orbit just beneath a U.S. satellite, calling it “irresponsible,” and more. Outside experts said they believe the recent action by Russia is no coincidence.
