KMI DIRECTOR KEEPS IN TOUCH FROM THE SKY!

KMi Director, Professor Marc Eisenstadt, is currently in the US for a Board Meeting of the new US Open University. Not wanting to be out of touch for too long with colleagues back in the UK, Marc is taking advantage of new in-flight facilities. The following message, together with picture, has just arrived from him:

"Howdy… just sending this from my seat on board USAirways flight 269 from NY to Columbus, OH, using a GTE ‘Airfone’ which includes a data port for my laptop’s modem… and naturally I’ve taken a digital picture of the phone itself and attached it with this email!! "

Good to hear from you Marc – see you soon. Enjoy the rest of your flight. A Planet story will be live before you land!!
