British astronaut Tim Peake was launched into space in December. He was sent into space to conduct experiments testing the toll space flight takes on a human body.
He had been trying to contact his family since he reached at the space station.
Tim Peake apologized for calling the wrong number from International Space Station on Christmas eve.
“Hello is this planet Earth?” he said, before realizing it is the wrong person he had called.”
The Astronaut posted on to Twitter Thursday evening to tell a woman, who answered his mistaken call that he hadn’t been prank calling her from station.
I’d like to apologize to the lady I just called by mistake saying ‘hello! Is this planet Earth”- not a prank call…just a wrong number—@astro_timpeake
Getting a call from an astronaut can be a surprise, regardless of circumstance. He said his own mother didn’t quite believe him when he called from space.
