In January 1961, a 3-year old chimpanzee named Ham rocketed into outer space propelling the U.S. a step closer to the goal of manned space flight. In November 1961, the 5-year old Enos soared into orbit, paving the way for John Glenn's momentous journey. Both Ham and Enos received worldwide attention for their triumphs but faded from glory once their services were no longer needed. In 1997, almost 40 years after Project Mercury, the Air Force announced that the remaining astro-chimp colony would finally be retired. But where did the space chimps go?
