Earth dropped from NASA mission statement

NASA has reportedly eliminated the promise "to understand and protect our home planet" from its mission statement.

The statement now proclaims the agency's mission is "to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research."

Another example of the Bush administration's interference with the reporting of scientific news they don't like? Such as :

U.S. space agency NASA says 2005 was the warmest globally in more than a century and that the preceding three years were also the warmest since the 1890s.

I think we should continue exploring space, but what's the use of doing that if we continue to devastate our own home planet.
