Dutch astronaut André Kuipers has revealed that he had once mistakenly dialled 911 from the International Space Station. To make satellite calls, astronauts are required to dial 9 followed by 011 for an international line. The 60-year-old, who spent 200 days in space between 2004 and 2012, forgot to dial 0 causing him to connect with the emergency services instead.
