An engineer from Ahmedabad has claimed he got connected with SpaceX Crew Dragon’s spaceship carrying two NASA astronauts into orbit.

It is said that the ham radio enthusiast on Wednesday got a response from SpaceX Crew Dragon’s astronauts while trying to connect with International Space Station

Adhir Saiyadh, a computer engineer, said that he was trying to connect with ISS when he suddenly received a response from Dragon capsule which docked with the orbital outpost on Sunday.

Saiyadh said, “I was on video call with a friend from Valsad, explaining to him the features of a mobile application that helps track ISS. He asked me if we can connect with ISS. I realised that the capsule was to pass over India around then and I decided to try my luck. I coincidentally got connected to their frequency and received a response from one of the commandants of the capsule,”

Sources claim, he got connected around the time the astronauts were giving the viewers of NASA TV an interactive tour of the cockpit
