Where’s HAL 9000 When You Really Need Him?

Two days ago, the crew of the international space station were hooking up cables to the station’s solar panels when *ZAP* the computers that control the craft’s orientation crashed. Damn Blue Screen of Death. They’ve been busy trying to reboot them but, alas, no success. NASA says if the computers can’t be fixed and Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are too busy to go up and get them working, the crew members might have to return to Earth early. Meanwhile, back on Earth, a woman in Palatine, IL, has been picking up black-and-white video from inside the space shuttle Atlantis on her baby monitor. A spokesperson from NASA says it’s not coming directly from the shuttle and suggests she change the channel so she can watch the space station crew hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del over and over and over.
