Well, it's a youtube video so it must be a hoax, right?
Published on Mar 15, 2013
Incredible footage of a translucent type entity caught briefly on NASA's live stream of the International Space Station. The footage cuts off due to NASA pulling the plug on the transmission and replacing it with the infamous static bar screen. If this is genuine footage then it proves yet again that NASA have failed to inform the people of the world that life exists outside planet Earth, albeit in this case, a possible proteus life form or invertebrate. Footage submitted via my website by Henry Grantham.
Righto. Space bug on the camera lens. Swimming dust. Space mites. Swamp gas rolled up into a ball and turned into a Chinese lantern. CGI. Hell if I know. Posted cause it's interesting, so don't shoot the fricken messenger.
An article in the latest (August 2009) edition of Scientific American describes an astronaut floating motionless with respect to his distant spaceship. He is not tethered to the spaceship and has no objects available that can be hurled away or can in some other way create a thrust. How is he ever going to make it back to his spaceship?
Well, think again. MIT professor Jack Wisdom did demonstrate in a paper published in 2003 in Science that it is possible to translate a deformable body solely by applying internal forces.
As elaborated in the Scientific American article, key to this swimming in empty space is the fact that the concept of center-of-mass is ill-defined in non-Euclidean space. Non-Euclidean space swimming is geometric in nature and entirely determined by the sequence of shapes assumed. In several ways this swimming is similar to the mechanism by which a cat falling upside-down rotates itself during free fall. Physicists refer to geometric phases to describe these effects.
Einstein's theory on spacetime curvature is now almost a century old. Only since a few years are we aware that his theory allows for spacetime swimming. The fact that this possibility remained unnoticed for such a long period makes us realize that we are still wrestling to understand all the consequences of Einstein's rich theories, and that we better be ready for a few more surprises at the horizon.
Distant stars and planets bend spacetime and create a non-Euclidean geometry. Would one measure the sum of the angles of a giant triangle formed in space, these angles would not add up to 180 degress as Euclidean geometry stipulates. It is precisely this deviation from the flat Euclidean geometry that enables swimming through a vacuum.

Of course what ADG says isn't necessarily true but It makes sense if you think about it , record a bit of streamed video then add your UFO .... No trail to follow as the original is lost in time .
So, I'm not marinologist, but your alien looks like Clione limacina - common name Naked Sea Butterfly or Common Clione, is a sea angel found from the surface to greater than 500 m in depth. [link to en.wikipedia.org] So now there are two options: 1) Video is hoax 2) ISS is under the water Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31502749 Than you. Excellent find. I was trying to find the species as well, but you nailed it. This is it. 100% match. To morons who don't understand : space is a material (not energetic) vacuum and at ISS orbital altitude things have net zero gravity forces acting on them. You can't move around by moving your flippers. The thing is a water-based lifeform that has been composited on top of the ISS feed (masking was done pretty well). Case solved people.
