A dastardly confluence of events has prevented us from Microkhaning to our full potential today. Back as soon as circumstances allow. In the meantime, take a break from the Game of Life by learning more about Ham the Chimp, one of the great unsung heroes of the American space program. Okay, perhaps “unsung” is a bit of a stretch—he did, after all, receive a proper burial beneath the lawn of the Space Hall of Fame. We wonder if Robert Vince has ever wandered over that way to pay his respects.
Also, the music in this film is fantastic. Check out the mirthful tune that kicks in around the 36-second mark, in particular.
