This week, we look at the history of spaceflight. Man has wanted to go the stars ever since he first noticed them in the sky, sometime in the late 1920s. And since the 1950s, we’ve been sending crap up into outer space. Also: some people. And: some monkeys. But: the monkeys were millionaires who bought their way onto a Russian space flight in the 1990s. Man, millionaire monkeys get to do all kinds of cool shit.
