'Is This Planet Earth?': Astronaut Aboard the ISS Dials Wrong Number


"Hello. Is this planet Earth?" That's what British astronaut Tim Peake said after dialing the wrong number — from space.

He wanted to assure the recipient it wasn't a prank call ... just a mistake that could happen to anyone 250 miles from Earth.

Peake arrived at his new home on the International Space Station in early December -- he'll have about five more months to figure out the right number.
