As the government shutdown continues on unresolved, the effects of the people who are unable to get to work are becoming more and more obvious. As stated, 97% of NASA employees were furloughed, effectively ending almost all NASA operations accept those of current missions and the ISS. However, some of the employees furloughed weren’t even full time, but interns.
Interns at NASA Ames Research Center were not only left with no work to go to, but were also evicted from the dorms housing them. Some of them have little money and are stranded across the country far from their homes. Some of them have been offered shelter by current NASA employees though, and work continues to make sure all are safe while this shutdown continues.
