Hello. I'm wondering what "Hello! Earth to space!" means in this context below.
Does it mean "tell me" or so?
-------from Dare to Disappoint by Ozge Samanci
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!
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?"
