A three-year-old chimpanzee, named Ham, in the biopack couch for the MR-2 suborbital test flight. On January 31, 1961, a Mercury-Redstone launch from Cape Canaveral carried the chimpanzee "Ham" over 640 kilometers down range in an arching trajectory that reached a peak of 254 kilometers above the Earth. The mission was successful and Ham performed his lever-pulling task well in response to the flashing light. NASA used chimpanzees and other primates to test the Mercury Capsule before launching the first American astronaut Alan Shepard in May 1961. The successful flight and recovery confirmed the soundness of the Mercury-Redstone systems.

In this Tuesday Aug. 3, 2010 file picture, accused Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk arrives in a courtroom in Munich. The FBI believed the Soviets "quite likely fabricated" evidence central to the prosecution of Demjanjuk, according to newly declassified documents from the 1980s _ a revelation that could help the defense as closing arguments resume Wednesday, April 13, 2011 in the retired Ohio auto worker's Nazi war crimes trial in Germany. The FBI field office report, obtained by The Associated Press, casts doubt on the authenticity of this Nazi ID card that is the key piece of evidence in allegations that Demjanjuk served as a guard at the Sobibor death camp in occupied Poland.
