Hey YouTube, Jim here! Welcome to Top10Archive! Since the early 1940s, almost 20 years before the first man went into space, programs across the globe used animals to test the viability of galactic travel. Even long after Yuri Gagarin’s milestone orbit of Earth in 1961, space programs have continued to send our furry friends beyond Earth’s orbit. Like the history of humans in space, animals have experienced their own milestones and disasters, the most notable of which chronicled in this installment of the Top 10 Times Animals Went into Space.
