"Hello! Is this planet Earth?"
That was the greeting a surprised woman got from astronaut Tim Peake from space.
The British astronaut Tim Peake is spending Christmas on the International Space Station (ISS), where he will be for six months to do research, reports CNN.
On Christmas Day he wanted to call home on Earth, but dialed the wrong number.
In the other end a stranger, an unsuspecting woman answered the phone and heard the following message.
"Hello! Is this planet Earth?".
After he realized that he had dialed the wrong number, he shared the experience 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 writes.
