...Space Monkeys?!

I usually refrain from sharing links on the internet but this one is worth everyone's while.

I do not condone animal testing. I just think this is peculiar and strange and everyone should see these photos just for the pure fact of how bizarre they look.

National Geographic shared photos of the first chimps sent into space, which happened fifty years ago on May 28th.

Three chimpanzees named Duane, Jim, and Chu sit strapped into spacecraft cradles at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, in January 1961.

The chimps were among 75 trainees slated to ride into space before humans, to help researchers test the physiological and neurological stresses of space flight.

  1. I agree, this is bizzare, and I am happy that the younger generation does not accept using animals in research.

    They need your voice,speak loudly, make our lawmakers listen
