Fruit flies, frogs and dogs are only a few of the many animals we have sent into space. Some months before Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space, chimpanzee Ham is blasted into the stratosphere, as seen through archival footage in this tragicomic look at the space program and the animals that “made it” before humankind.
