There's no reason to repeat the dark days of early space exploration, in which dogs, primates, and other animals died in horrific ways, including in crude experiments or all alone in a tiny spacecraft.
NASA, the European Space Agency and the Chinese National Space Administration all choose to advance space exploration without using primates. Russia needs to do the same.
Please sign our petition to be delivered to the Russian Embassy, urging the Russian Federal Space Agency to stop this ill-advised mission and send the monkeys to a sanctuary instead.
