NASA cancels all public activities/events

Due to the government shutdown, all public NASA activities/events are cancelled or postponed until further notice, the space agency announced on Tuesday.

Sorry, but we won't be tweeting/responding to replies during the government shutdown,” officials at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia said on Twitter. “Be back as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.”

During the shutdown, most NASA operations would cease and most employees would be furloughed, with the exception of operations and personnel needed to protect life and property.
