UK astronaut Tim Peake has apologised for dialling a wrong number from space and saying to a woman on the other end of the line: “Hello, is this planet Earth?”
Mr Peake said on Twitter it was not intended to be a “prank call”.
The astronaut, a father-of-two from Chichester, West Sussex, arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) on Tuesday 15 December.
He is spending six months conducting scientific experiments on the station.
