  • Monkeys in Space - 1962 NASA Balloon Flight Photo

    SKU: 20-S-1

     Press photo, b & w, 8x10".  Image of two monkeys inside a spherical balloon gondola.  Reverse has several press stamps and a pasted-on clipping of the AP wirephoto.  I believe this to be the Aug 1, 1962 NASA test using a 380' high balloon flying to 128,000 ft from Goose Bay, Labrador to Edmunton, Alberta.  Photo is very good; some toning on the reverse.
