Space monkey

Space monkey. Rhesus macaque in a space probe simulator during training for the Soviet-American Bion space programme. The monkey is being made accustomed to the environment of a space capsule. Monkeys were sent into space on the Bion program to investigate the physiological changes that occur during spaceflight, as well as to study their response to radiation exposure. Photographed in the USSR in September 1987

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from Science Photo Library takes us back to September 1987 in the Soviet Union, where a remarkable training session for the Bion space program is taking place. Captured within the frame is a Rhesus macaque, affectionately known as "Space monkey" undergoing preparation inside a space probe simulator. The image showcases the dedication of scientists and researchers who sought to understand how living organisms adapt to the extreme conditions of outer space. Monkeys were chosen as test subjects due to their physiological similarities with humans, making them ideal candidates for studying the effects of spaceflight on living beings. In this particular moment frozen in time, we witness an important stage in Space monkey's training: acclimatization to the environment inside a space capsule. The simulator provides an artificial representation of what it would be like during an actual mission, allowing scientists to observe and analyze any changes that occur within its body. The Bion program aimed not only to investigate physiological transformations induced by weightlessness but also explore radiation exposure effects on these brave primates. This groundbreaking research paved the way for future manned missions and contributed significantly to our understanding of human adaptation beyond Earth's atmosphere. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are reminded of humanity's relentless pursuit of knowledge and exploration. It serves as a testament to our curiosity about what lies beyond our planet and highlights the invaluable contributions made by animals like Space monkey in advancing scientific progress.
