It's the time of year to give what you can and receive what you need.

Shutdown: NASA Says Ta Ta for Now on Instagram | Truthdig.com

Shutdown: NASA Says Ta Ta for Now on Instagram | Truthdig.com | Current events | Scoop.it

The space agency waved a cheeky goodbye from the social image site Tuesday, saying “we won’t be posting or replying to comments during the U.S. government shutdown.”

 

NASA broke that rule almost immediately to let a concerned commenter know that vital services would continue and it wouldn’t be stranding any astronauts in space.

 

Speaking of comments, there are lots of them, mainly variations on the :( emoticon. As of this posting, NASA had 239,100 followers on Instagram, even though it joined the service less than a month ago. It’s been a great way for the agency to share some of its breathtaking images, from rocket launches to views of Earth from space.

Thomas Ewing's insight:

NASA has an Instagram, since the government shutdown NASA has stopped posting pictures and said they would no longer be posting or replying to comments. They broke that rule when replying to a concerned  person and said that needed NASA personal would be attended and no astronauts would be stranded in space. NASA has over 200,000 followers on instagram and they post breath taking photos ranging from rocket launches to cool pictures of space. A lot of people are very sad and disappointed about them not posting anymore pictures. 

I think that the government shutdown is bad in a lot of ways but one of the less important things is that NASA Instagram is shutting down I mean its a big deal but its not that big of deal its and Instagram site. I also think that when something like that shuts down that it will go back up when the government returns.
