Baby, monitor this space mission

As a longtime fan of the Baby Be of Use series, I was glad to see a baby finally stepping up to the plate--by monitoring a NASA space mission. Ok, via the baby monitor, but still. It's not shocking, of course, since it's really a radio transmitter like any other--but it's something to think about that your baby could, just as likely, be viewed remotely by other transmitters. If you don't have such a hypersensitive baby monitor but you still want to keep current as the Atlantis crew repairs thermal blankets and installs hydrogen vents, you can watch footage here. And just to be silly, if you could have one other remote-viewing channel on your baby monitor (let's say not subject to normal space-time restrictions), what would it be?
