ABSTRACT
The article comments on the monkeys who were launched in space. The author states that the pictures of Otto, a Perodicticus potto which is not quite a monkey, which appeared in the "Times" and Herald Tribune" newspapers after his brief trip to space, was a nice touch of symbolism for education. Monkey astronauts Able and Baker were also emphasized for their achievement in space trip. The realization of giving the squirrel monkey astronaut his freedom was also considered.
