I want to ask how this pandemic is expected to affect space travel and future plans for NASA and other space agencies. I've decided with the help of meta to ask more specifically about any currently planned space missions. Are any of them being delayed, set back or having complications due to any of the following:
- Lack of materials being imported from countries where trade has been closed off.
- Worry about contamination of employees, instruments or spacecraft.
- Inability to maintain a working staff who can "man the machines"?
I'm interested in any setbacks including:
- A loss of data due to a lack of scientists on site (thank you @uhoh for this suggestion).
- Any delay in launches, maneuvers, ISS return missions, etc...
- Far-in-the-future planned missions being pushed back.
Information for any space agency is great, NASA was what I had in mind because it's local, but I can't imagine India's space agency isn't also facing setbacks. If you have information about the ESA, China, Russia or any other of the space-involved countries that is also absolutely welcome.
I'm mostly curious as to if any of these agencies had plans in place for this type of disaster, as the space industry is notable for its contingency plans.
