    Smile Hello! Earth to space!

    Hello. I'm wondering what "Hello! Earth to space!" means in this context below.
    Does it mean "tell me" or so?
    Thank you.

    I was silent while Pelin and I walked back upstairs.
    Pelin: What happened? Talk to me. Did the cat get your tongue? Hello! Earth to space!

    Re: Hello! Earth to space!

    The character Pelin is talking to isn't paying attention, so much so that she could be in outer space. Pelin pretends he's speaking into a radio microphone, signaling "This is Earth calling outer space, can you hear me?"
