Animals In Space

Animals In Space are important to Space Exploration

Animals In Space are important to Space Exploration because they didn't know if humans would survive in space so they sent animals first before humans and saw how they reacted, So sending animals into space helped astronauts planning to go into space.

The Purpose Of Sending Animlas Into Space

People didn't know if it was safe for humans to go into space so they sent animals before humans.

How Does Animals In Space Affect Today

It affects us today because we would have not probably be sending humans to space if we haven't sent animals into space. If we haven't sent animals into space we probably wouldn't have some medications.

What I Think

I think they could send more animals into space to places they have never been to and do more studies and more tests so they can take NASA to a whole nother level.
