Dialing the wrong phone number is not just an earthly occurrence.
A British astronaut confined to the boundaries of outer space managed it on Christmas.
Canoe News reports:
British astronaut Tim Peake tweeted an apology on Christmas Day from the International Space Station after calling a wrong number.
He wrote “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!”

The 43-year-old former army helicopter pilot did not say who he was calling.
Since he’s Britain’s first publicly funded astronaut and the first Briton to visit the space station, millions of Britons have been following his mission closely.
Peake has also used Twitter to send Christmas greetings.
