The planet Donald Trump doesn’t want you to see


NASA has a little program with a big view of Earth, but President Donald Trump wants to shut it down. 

If a new budget outline released by the Trump administration Thursday goes through, it will cancel funding for the instruments on the DSCOVR spacecraft that face our planet from 1 million miles away.  

It’s a relatively small budget cut — though it’s unclear how much would be saved — in a proposal to trim billions of dollars from many agencies, but Trump’s desire to cancel this one specific part of a mission speaks volumes.
