The astronauts least expected this bizarre visitor to accompany them to space but it turned out not to be what they feared.
A top astronaut’s prank on his colleague has sent Twitter users into a frenzy after it reemerged online.
Back in 2016, reports emerged of bizarre monkey business onboard the International Space Station in scenes shot by Major Tim Peake and Mark Kelly.
The footage showed Peake being pursued through the ISS by a man, who we assume is Mark Kelly, dressed in a gorilla costume.
The tweet which brought the story back to light claimed the gorilla suit was taken on board without anyone knowing in order to set up the perfect prank.
