The flight of a monkey called Able (a rhesus monkey supplied by the Army) on 28th May 1959 marked the first successful recovery of living creatures after their return to earth from outer space.

Able the monkey

The monkey rode in the nose cone of JUPITER Missile AM-18 to an altitude of 300 miles and a distance of 1,500 miles, successfully withstanding 38 times the normal pull of gravity and a weightless period of about 9 minutes.
Their survival of speeds over 10,000 miles per hour was the first step toward putting a man into space.
