NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken spent an hour waiting inside SpaceX's Crew Dragon Capsule after splashing down in the Gulf of Mexico and to pass the time, the 'space dads' made a few prank calls.

Hurely revealed the mischievous endeavor during a press conference, saying the roller-coaster like trip home was 'a lot to process' and joked they were 'making prank satellite phone calls' - and suggested SpaceX CEO Elon Musk foot the bill for the calls.

Hurley and Behnken made their historic water landing at 2:48pm ET inside SpaceX's Dragon Capsule – the first time this has been attempted in 45 years.

'Five hours ago, we were in a spaceship, bobbing around, making prank satellite phone calls to whoever we could get a hold of. Which was kind of fun, by the way,' Hurley said during a welcome-home ceremony in Houston, where NASA's astronaut corps is based.

Although the team did not elaborate on who they phoned while trapped in the capsule, NASA flight director Anthony Vareha shared he was pranked.

'I received one of these calls at the flight director console. It started with an opening line like 'Hi, it's Doug and Bob, and we're in the ocean.' I think my response was, 'Yeah, I can see that,' he wrote in a tweet.

Behnken's wife, NASA astronaut Megan McArthur, also received a call from the newly returned Crew Dragon.
