By now, you may well have heard that Russia sent a satellite up in to space full of sexually charged geckos.

If you haven't, then you can look over here, or let John Oliver explain it to you in brief in his video where he decides to get some celebrity power behind his latest campaign.

The worry, of course, is that these poor geckos have been lost in space, so Oliver wants to make sure that we don't leave them behind, encouraging us to interact using the hashtag #GoGetThoseGeckos, and he even brings in some celebrity pals like Buzz Aldrin to help.

Well, what are you waiting for? Get tweeting, and don't forget to write that letter to Vladimir Putin too.
