Timothy Peake, British Astronaut, Dials Wrong Number From Space
#1
He may have the right stuff, but he got the wrong digits.

Timothy Peake, a former British Army Air Corps officer and current European Space Agency astronaut aboard the International Space Station, phoned home to a wrong number on Thursday.

After failing to connect, he took his flub to Twitter, posting: "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!"
