You may be wondering how a gorilla got on the space station? Well, there's no such thing as space gorillas, but the man in the ape suit was NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, who's having a bit of birthday fun. The gorilla costume was a birthday gift he received from his twin brother Mark Kelly, a retired NASA astronaut.

Kelly, who's returning to Earth on March 1 after a year-long mission on the space station, posted the hilarious footage to Twitter.
