With the government shutdown over, employees are happy to be getting back to their jobs. NASA tweeted, “We’re back and in the process of turning things back on - www.nasa.gov and #NASA TV will be up as soon as possible!” NASA said it would now assess the status of programs at KSC to see how they were impacted. A message for employees said to expect some delays as services resume. Meanwhile, the shutdown did result in some missed opportunities for NASA to communicate with spacecraft to collect data, as well as chances to celebrate anniversaries, like NASA’s 55th and Cassini’s 16th birthdays.
