MONKEYS: A monkey named Multik rests in the cabin of a Russian Soyuz-U spacecraft prior to launch from Plesetsk, Russia, on a mission called Bion-11 in 1996. Monkeys were some of the first animals flown into space. They were studied to see what the biological effects of space travel would be for astronauts.
