The first monkey astronaut was named Albert. The second monkey astronaut was, imaginatively, called Albert II. While Albert II was technically the first monkey to reach space altitude, it wasn't until the fifth line in the Albert dynasty (Albert V), that a monkey successfully returned from space. Unfortunately for Albert V, his parachute let him down and he became another victim of the human space race.
2nd year final major project. Hand-drawn animation about a monkey alone in space. Based on one of the many animals who didn't return safely back to Earth.
