Gorilla on the International Space Station?!

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


Either someone at NASA stowed the incorrect storage bag on the supply capsule for the International Space Station, or this is some kind of hilarious prank. A video shared by NASA astronaut Scott Kelly's identical twin brother Mark Kelly reveals a gorilla floating around on the International Space Station.

What gives?

As it turns out, the gorilla is just Scott Kelly pulling a prank on his fellow colleagues on the International Space Station. He's in the gorilla suit, which was given to him as a present from his brother Mark.

Things can be boring or lonely on the International Space Station, so one can always count on Scott to brighten the mood.
