First In Space

    (Oni, 2007)

The biographical story of Ham, the first monkey to fly into space in 1959, beating humans by three years. The space race was on. The Russians had already sent up a dog into space. A “PETA” stance is taken with the book, but honestly without the sacrifices of the animals sent up on these sometimes-tragic missions, man would have never landed on the moon. The book concludes with the end of animal testing for space travel purposes and shows what happened to Ham after it was all over. (Don’t worry, it’s a happy ending.)
