WCCF: In some surprisingly good news we learned that the NASA Mars Rover Curiosity will be not cease in its symbolic mission, even though NASA has basically completely stopped in the wake of US Government Shutdown.
Glad to know shitty politics arent getting in the way of actual progress.
Its Alive! Its Alive! o.o
If Nasa isnt getting funds how will the Mars Rover team get paid? :P
They Wont. The people there are dedicated enough to work without pay. When this thing resolves, then they get paid.
Now those are the kind of people that will get us to space without money being a total barrier
Their pay is retroactive, afaik. Codelyoko pretty much nailed it with better detail.
Robot don't need no government to do his duty!
Robot be like fuck the government
Aww this reminds me of WALL-E.
The thing is, this shutdown isn't a shutdown. Its a "We are going to take away everything from the people to make you look bad" tactic. The idiots that "shutdown" everything still get paid through all of this. The people that need that money? Tough luck till the baboons are done humping each other in the white house.
nasa feeds and etc shut down ? could it be we are planning something huge in space and this is a huuge cover up in disguise as a shutdown etc
If we ever want to reach the stars... greed can't stand in the way.
