Ham the first Chimp in Space NASA DVD (1960)

This newsreel dvd show NASA exploration in Space with Ham the Chimp. Ham (August 1956? - January 19, 1983), also known as Ham the Chimp and Ham the Astrochimp, was the first higher primate launched into outer space. In December 1960 the four-year-old chimpanzee was trained to do simple, timed tasks in response to electric lights and sounds. On January 31, 1961, Ham was secured in a Project Mercury capsule labeled MR-2 and launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida into outer space. The capsule suffered a partial loss of pressure during the flight, but Ham's space suit prevented him from suffering any harm. During the flight Ham had to push a lever within five seconds of seeing a flashing blue light; as per pre-flight training, failure would result in an application of positive punishment in the form of an electric shock to the soles of his feet. Ham's performance in space was only a fraction of a second slower than on Earth, demonstrating that tasks could be performed in space. Ham's capsule splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean and was recovered by a rescue ship later that day. After the flight, Ham lived for 17 years in the National Zoo in Washington D.C., then at the North Carolina Zoo before dying at the age of 27 on January 19, 1983. Ham appeared repeatedly on television, as well as on film with Evel Knievel.
