Monkeys and Apes in Space

According to WikiPedia before humans went into space, several animals were launched into space, including numerous non-human primates, so that scientists could investigate the biological effects of space travel. The United States launched flights containing primate cargo primarily between 1948-1961 with one flight in 1969 and one in 1985. France launched two monkey-carrying flights in 1967. Overall thirty-two monkeys flew in the space program; none flew more than once. Numerous back-up monkeys also went through the programs but never flew. Monkeys and apes from several species were used, including rhesus monkeys, cynomolgus monkeys, squirrel monkeys, pig-tailed macaques, and chimpanzees. The first ever primate astronaut was Albert, a rhesus monkey, who on June 11, 1948, rode to over 39 miles on a V-2 rocket. Albert died of suffocation during the flight. The United States recorded a milestone in May 1959, finally recovering two primates alive after a spaceflight. A rhesus monkey named Able and a squirrel monkey named Baker reached an altitude of 300 miles aboard a Jupiter rocket and were retrieved unharmed. After it became established that humans could indeed survive the rigors of spaceflight, monkeys and apes faded into the background.
