Nat Geo Channel unearths Steve Jobs’ Mouse from time capsule

It’s not every day that computers are featured on the National Geographic Channel, but on February 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET, Apple, the late Steve Jobs and the Lisa Mouse will all take center stage on the cable network.

A crew attached to the network dug up Steve Jobs’ personal time capsule, which was buried in Aspen, Colorado, and put together way back in June of 1983 by Jobs and attendees of the International Design Conference which took place that month. The show “Diggers” discovered the tube last fall, and broadcasted its discovery on television. The next step in the Steve Jobs Time Capsule adventure of course involved rummaging through its contents, which included an Apple Lisa Mouse (pictured) that Jobs used at the conference during a presentation. Other items found in the capsule included a Moody Blues record, a pair of Rubik’s Cubes, and much more.

Initially, the capsule was slated to be dug up and opened back in 2000, but some confusion made the capsule difficult to find. The National Geographic Channel had to employ some modern tech in order to locate the time capsule.

Though video of the excavation won’t be aired on TV until Feb. 25, CNET published an exclusive video of the operation, which you can watch below.
