U.S. Strategic Command
Known as Stratcom and based at this base south of Omaha, Strategic Command is one of America's three functional combatant commands (and one of nine overall) and covers the whole planet, the depths of the oceans, and up to 22,000 nautical miles into space.
From operating B-2 bombers over Libya to space analysts looking into radiation fallout from Japan's 2011 earthquake and tsunami, Stratcom is involved.
As part of Road Trip 2013, CNET's Daniel Terdiman visited Stratcom for a look at its history, its present and its future.
