Christmas: Astronaut dials wrong number from space

Keen to avoid missing out totally on the Christmas celebrations, an astronaut decided to call Earth from space.

As he dialed the number, he didn’t expect that the call would require him tweeting an apology and being in the news.

But Tim Peake, the first British astronaut on the International Space Station, dialed the wrong number.

When a strange female voice answered the call, he replied with an equally strange question, “Is this planet Earth?”

Realising his error, he quickly apologised, on Twitter.

“I’d like to apologise to the lady I just called by mistake saying ‘Hello, is this planet Earth?’ – not a prank call…just a wrong number!” he tweeted late on Thursday.

The AFP reported that Peake, 43, became the first British astronaut to travel to the space station after blasting off from the Moscow-operated Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan earlier this month.

The British astronaut, who arrived at the International Space on December 15, is expected to spend six months on the station, conducting scientific research, CNN reported.
