Today’s news, straight from a Chicago suburb, is that a baby monitor is picking up live coverage of the NASA space mission! This interesting AP story notes that:
Since Sunday, one of the two channels on Natalie Meilinger’s baby monitor has been picking up black-and-white video from inside the space shuttle Atlantis. The other still lets her keep an eye on her baby.
Elementary school teacher Natalie Meilinger said that she has become addicted to the coverage and “can’t wait to see what’s next.” She’s brought in a clip of it to show her students and co-workers. This is not exactly what we had in mind when we recommended that there be a better understanding of technology in the schools, but–who knows–maybe one of her students will be inspired to study hard and become an astronaut or scientist.
