vulnerable to attack. they say china, in particular, has been actively testing anti- satellite weapons that could, in effect, knock out america's eyes and ears. no one wants a war in space, but it's the job of a branch of the air force called space command to prepare for one. if you've never heard of space command, it's because most of what it does happens hundreds, even thousands, of miles above the earth, or deep inside highly secure command centers. you may be as surprised as we were to find out how the high stakes game for control of space is played. the research being done at the starfire optical range in albuquerque, new mexico, was kept secret for many years-- and for a good reason, which only becomes apparent at night. first, the roof of one building is opened to the stars. then the walls retract, and an object straight out of "star wars" appears shooting a laser into the sky. the laser's beam helps a high- powered telescope focus in on objects in space so the air force can get a better look at the satellites of potential adversaries like china whizzing by at 17,000 miles per h

espionage, orchestrated by china, to rip off american trade secrets and intellectual property. the justice department considers it a national security emergency costing our economy hundreds of billions of dollars. three years ago, the u.s. government launched a new strategy to fight back with more aggressive investigations and a greater number of prosecutions. we've discovered the dragnet isn't just catching chinese spies, it's ensnaring a growing number of americans who aren't spies at all. >> xiaoxing xi: it was so urgent, the pounding was so urgent that i run here to open the door without even being fully dressed. >> whitaker: last may, the f.b.i. paid an early morning visit to scientist xiaoxing xi at his home in suburban philadelphia. >> xi: so i opened the door, and so i see a lot of people outside. >> whitaker: they have on bulletproof vests? >> xi: yes, they did, yeah, and with guns. >> whitaker: xi is chair of the temple university physics department. but the f.b.i. was convinced he was a spy, passing hi-tech american secrets to china. he was stunned when agents burst in a

at least $65,000. he fled to china and was later indicted. in an interview with bloomberg news three years ago, the forger explained he began painting in shanghai, and moved to the u.s. in the 1980s. he insisted he never intended to pass his paintings off as anything other than imitations and found it incredible that anyone had taken the paintings seriously. forensic analyst jamie martin points out there were obvious clues these paintings were fakes if you knew what to look for. this forged jackson pollock, for example, came with a misspelled signature. the "c" in pollock is missing. this fake mark rothko painting was sold by knoedler gallery for more than $8 million. jamie martin found evidence it was a forgery within just a hour of looking at it. an hour? that's all it took? >> martin: well, you and i can detect it probably within five minutes. >> cooper: how? >> martin: if we turned around the back, we can see that the white ground is apparent on the back of the canvas. >> cooper: the white ground between the canvas and the paint was crucial evidence because mark rothko did
