You may have heard in the news that the U.S. government is shutting down, leaving many folks out of their office until Congress decides on a budget. There's a lot you can read out there about what that means, but all the news sites aren't asking any of the tough questions. In between working, sharing gifs, watching kitten and corgi cams in the absence of the panda cam, and Instagramming picturs our dogs, we did ask the hard questions. With 97 percent of NASA on leave, who's watching for asteroids -- or aliens? Or, is Starbucks still open? If so, can I still not bring my gun? We just need to know.
