We thought the story of Ham the Spacemonkey fits well to the context of this Song.
The Film/Newsreel "Trailblazer in Space" (1961) is taken from the Prelinger Archives licensed under Public Domain.
Chimp Ham (July 1956 -- January 19, 1983), also known as Ham the Astrochimp, was the first chimpanzee launched into outer space in the American space program.
After the flight, Ham lived for 17 years in the National Zoo in Washington.
But the best thing he did wasn´t observing space! For the first time society recognizes chimpanzees as empathetic and intelligent beings.
