A rhesus macaque Able and a squirrel monkey Miss Baker rose with the ship to a height of 480 kilometers and returned safely to Earth. The flight was suborbital, and the two monkeys became the world's first creatures to return from space. Although Able was less lucky upon her return to earth – when the doctors removed the sensors, the monkey failed to survive anesthesia. And the female squirrel monkey Baker lived until 1984.
