Monkey goes into Space!
Space Monkey flew to 36km above Oxfordshire on Friday 4th May 2012 as part of our Subsonic Parachute Test programme for the European Space Agency. He hitched a ride aboard the helium balloon carrying the test parachute aloft. After the balloon burst, Space Monkey parachuted safely back to earth. Space Monkey is a mascot for a local Northamptonshire Secondary School.
