This equipment managed to pickup a signal for the convergence between the realms. Whilst investigating she slipped into the alternate realm (where the Aether was hidden by Bor's men) and it bonded itself to her.
Um, yes it is. The fact that she stumbled upon one of these anomalies is fine. The problem is that this portal takes her directly to the Aether. The chances of it taking her to the Aether rather than any other place in the nine worlds completely strains credibility. And this isn't the only time something like this happens.
Another huge one is that Thor and Jane just happen to stumble upon the portal that the intern threw the keys through.
