This is also mentioned elsewhere on SEx.SE in - How did the US government shutdown of 2013 affect NASA operations?
An article on this site writes to say
While 97 percent of NASA will be furloughed during a shutdown, the exception to the rule will be astronauts in space, who keep working, shutdown or no shutdown. Mission Control, which supports them, will also be working.
- With the bulk of the US Government in shutdown, do Mission Control & Astronauts qualify to be calculated for overtime?
- Further, regardless of the present shut-down, do astronauts & staff at any launch-pad (not restricted to NASA, or USA personnel) qualify for hazardous duty calculation?
