U.S. Shutdown Kept Some Germans Awake at Night

Who knew? German insomniacs watch NASA space feed all night

"A quirky habit of German insomniacs and "chill-out" music fans has come to world attention thanks to the U.S. government shutdown. "Space Night," a nearly 20-year-old late-night broadcast by Bavarian Television, provides a music-sharing platform against a backdrop of NASA's video feed from the International Space Station. But the 15-day-old U.S. government shutdown has idled the NASA archivists responsible for relaying the imagery beyond Mission Control, cutting off fresh backdrops to mix with the music for "Space Night" broadcasts that were to have launched a new season Nov. 1."

Keith's note: FYI Space Station Soma and Mission Control at Soma FM stream NASA-flavored music 24/7.
