Space station commander 'gets personalised birthday presents'
Personalised birthday presents may have been on board an unmanned rocket that docked at the International Space Station (ISS) over the weekend.
Commander of the facility Scott Kelly will celebrate his 47th birthday on February 24th and the vessel, which delivered food, equipment and other supplies for the crew, also contained gifts for the US astronaut.
Mr Kelly is part of a six-person crew on board the ISS, along with Oleg Skripochka, Dmitry Kondratyev, Paolo Nespoli, Catherine Coleman and Alexander Kaleri.
He is the brother of Mark Kelly, the husband of US congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who recently survived being shot in the head during an assassination attempt.
Another person who has already celebrated their birthday is Actress Nicole Kidman.
Closer magazine reports that she was given a hamper by Isabella and Connor, the two children she adopted with former husband Tom Cruise.
Kidman also has two young daughters with current husband Keith Urban, one of which, Faith, was born last month.
