The first chimpanzee in space was Ham, who flew on January 31, 1961. During Ham's flight, he spent approximately 16 minutes in the air, while the space capsule accelerated to a speed of approximately 5800 mph and reached a height of 157 miles. For a little more than six minutes, Ham was weightless. It is said that after he was finally released from the capsule after landing back on Earth, his face beamed with an enormous grin. While some people thought Ham's smile was a smile of happiness and joy, in reality, it showed extreme fear and anxiety. Ham died on January 18, 1983, at the estimated age of 26, 22 years after he made his historic space flight. In Memoriam
