911 Call An Honest Mistake From Space! Houston We Have A Problem

Hello, Houston, ah no there’s no problem.  Wrong number.

Newsweek claims Dutch astronaut André Kuipers recently called 911 while orbiting the Earth. The 60 year-old was trying to call NASA when he dialed “9” for an outside line and then “11”. Andre was supposed to dial 011 for an international line. He says; “I made a mistake, and the next day I received an email message: did you call 911?”

The 60-year-old said that to reach the center in Houston, orbiting astronauts have to dial 9 for an outside line, followed by 011 for an international line. But of course, doing so while floating around in space is trickier than from a desk on Earth. “I made a mistake, and the next day I received an email message: did you call 911?”
