The United States government shutdown could have the unintended effect of making Germans go to bed earlier.
Public television station Bayerisches Fernsehen said Monday that new high-definition video it hopes to use for its "Space Night" program won't be able available Nov. 1 as planned because archivists at NASA, a key source of footage, are among U.S. federal employees currently furloughed.
"Space Night" was launched in 1994 and is a favorite among rave goers and insomniacs.
