Rocketlab has started streaming, but is only showing their logo at the moment.

Youtube stream is "live", but just a picture on screen at the moment.

Could be good news or an accidental click.

I want it to be real!

Effective Date 12/15/2017, Completion Date 04/16/2018  $10,134,469.00

In accordance with this task order statement of work, the Contractor shall perform an Inconel tank feasibility study and submit a cost proposal to implement follow-on Inconel development and initial cost information regarding full transition to Inconel tanks for crewed vehicles.  The feasibility report includes manufacturing R&D activities performed, results; and detailed information regarding the Spin-forming Process.

The task order also includes Solid Oxygen (SOx) test stand development and build; ground fluid system and supporting infrastructure development in order to collect information regarding the pressurized tanks used in the CTS.

Would like to cross-post this to r/SpaceX. Is there a direct link somewhere so I can avoid stressing the server?

I don't think you'd stress the server that much  :)

I found it on fpds.gov, which requires registration to look at it (and is kind of a pain in the rear to use, but it's free.)  You might be able to find it on one of the other government contract aggregation sites.

I wonder what effect (if any), a shutdown will have on ISS ops, specifically the spacewalk? Hopefully none!

--- Tony

That question was addressed in the Q&A section of the video previewing the spacewalks.  The only potential impact addressed was Public Affairs Officers and potentially livestreaming, NASA HQ would have to determine whether they would be ok to participate in the event of shutdown.  There were no impacts to the actual operations of the ISS in general or to the spacewalks in particular.
