Government is a NO GO, which means that NASA is frozen. The immediate consequence: MAVEN—the next big mission to Mars—may get canned till 2016 because we may miss the current launch window, as Mars and Earth get out of the proper alignment. $600 million spent for nothing.
The government started to shut down on Tuesday morning after Congress embarrassingly failed to come to an agreement on the budget. It's bad news. While science and technology programs as a whole took a hit, NASA's MAVEN spacecraft set is particularly screwed.
