    On January 31 1961, Ham (1956-83),  the first chimpanzee launched into space,  traveled 16 minutes aboard the Mercury spacecraft no. 5.   The capsule suffered a partial loss of pressure during the flight, but Ham’s space suit prevented him from suffering any harm.  Ham’s lever-pushing performance in space was only a fraction of a second slower than on Earth, demonstrating that tasks could be performed in space.
