Tell NASA to Stop Using Primates for Space Research

NASA is considering continued research on primates (and other animals) to study how the environment in space affects biological processes, enabling NASA to develop “a safe, productive human presence in space for extended periods”.

Severe discomfort, distress, pain or injury, willful and intentional prolonged animal suffering constitute animal cruelty.

It is cruel, and barbaric while serving no useful purpose and yielding no benefical information. Decades of radiation research involving nonhuman primates have not advanced human space travel. Genetic, anatomical, and physiological differences between humans and monkeys make this type of research unproductive.

We ask NASA to stop using animals for space research.
