International Space Station astronaut: Hello, Is this Planet Earth?… Sorry Wrong Number



It is not every day that you get a call from the International Space Station asking “Hello, is this planet Earth?” An unsuspecting woman experienced exactly this on Christmas when British astronaut Tim Peake mistakenly called the wrong number from the ISS.

The astronaut later apologised to the lady for his mistake and assured her it was not a prank call and that he was trying to speak to someone on earth from the International Space Station.

Tim Peake divulged this on microblogging site Twitter.

Tim Peake who arrived on the ISS on December 15 will be at the space station for six months to conduct scientific experiments. Earlier on December 22, the British astronaut had delivered a Christmas video message from the International Space Station (ISS).
