I sure wish some of the things you publish weren't so propaganda oriented...

Numerous other sources never mention "attempt by the Soviets to drill to the center of the Earth".

What these other articles say is similar to this:

Quote:
While the U.S. and U.S.S.R. vied for space-exploration supremacy during the Space Race, a different, less-publicized race took place between the two nation's greatest drillers. In the late 1950s and early 1960s Americans and Soviets began planning separate efforts to drill as deep as possible into the Earth's crust, the rocky shell that comprises the outer 30-50 km of the 6730 km distance to our planet's core.

Man, the mother nature network, a real solid unbiased scientific news source...

Is this really how dumb American citizens have become to believe BS like MNN published?
