"NASA will shut down almost entirely, but Mission Control will remain open to support the astronauts serving on the Space Station."
"If a FY 2014 continuing resolution is not passed before 12:01 AM on October 1, NASA can only engage in activities related to the orderly shutdown of operations and performance of excepted activities. As a required part of a shutdown, employees who will not be performing activities excepted by law will be furloughed and unable to work for the duration of the shutdown, unless recalled for an excepted activity."
Due to the gov't shutdown, all public NASA activities/events are cancelled or postponed until further notice. Sorry for the inconvenience.— NASA (@NASA) October 1, 2013
"All NASA employees, unless individually informed otherwise by your supervisor(s), are designated as non-excepted. This means that, if funding lapses, you will be furloughed."
"Your managers will begin reaching out to you tomorrow (Thursday, September 26) to provide additional detail on our contingency plans and your status under a potential lapse. These conversations are designed to provide clarity on how a potential lapse will affect you, but they do not constitute an official notice of furlough. Official furlough notices will only be issued on October 1 if a lapse in funding has occurred."
"The estimated time to complete the shutdown for routine agency activities, which includes the vast majority of NASA employees, contractor employees, and facilities, is less than on-half day."
"Right now, NASA is warning its employees that they may not be paid for any furloughed time off. Pay will depend on future appropriations."
