I just recently switched my topic from Primate Psychology to Animals in Space. I was researching famous primates and came across one named Albert, who was the first monkey sent into space. I soon found out that there were three more "Alberts" that came after, all of whom died while on the expedition. Before I knew it, I was looking up all kinds of animals who had traveled to space. Nearly all of them died. I found this very appalling. Sending animals unwillingly into space is completely unfair. So, I decided to do my project about that.
So far, I have only worked one Friday, but right now I have about 6 slides done. I will try to use the rest of my time wisely to finish my project on time.
What I have left to do:
-research more about the "Albert monkeys"
-learn if people still send animals into space
-research health risks to animals
-learn about the space capsules
