SNL opening skit: ‘Gravity’ meets government shutdown

Powered by Topple

Last night’s “Saturday Night Live” opened with a take off on the new blockbuster film, “Gravity,” in which the two astronauts become separated from the Hubble telescope. In SNL’s version, this happens during a government shutdown. Help comes from an unlikely source — who happen to be the only “essential personnel” left at NASA.

It’s just too bad space hadn’t been declared a federal park. The National Park Service would have sent them back home.

Watch the clip from NBC.
