Caption: Enos the astrochimp. Enos the chimpanzee with his trainer. Enos was launched into space on-board Mercury-Atlas 5 (MA-5), an American unmanned spaceflight of the Mercury program. It was launched on November 29, 1961 and orbited the Earth twice before splashing down off the coast of Puerto Rico. MA-5 was planned as a close approximation of the upcoming MA-6 manned orbital mission. Enos' training was more intense than that of Ham, the Americans' first chimp in space, because Enos would be exposed to weightlessness and a higher g-force for longer periods of time.
