Science and the Shutdown

Reddit  has a fascinating thread going today on how the work of scientists is being sidelined while Congress hashes out their disagreements.
Websites like the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NASA, and the National Science Foundation (NSF) are dark. Some projects are postponing field work. Others are worried about upcoming grant cycles and when grant applications that have been submitted might be reviewed.
The thread  is fairly free from partisan politics, and gives many of us non-scientist types a glimpse at some of the research that’s now on hold.
