life:

On the morning of January 31, 1961, a 5-year-old chimpanzee named “Ham”  ate a breakfast of baby cereal, condensed milk, vitamins, and half an  egg. Then the playful 37-pound primate went out into the Cape Canaveral  light and made aeronautic history: Aboard a NASA space capsule —  traveling almost 160 miles above the Earth — he became the first chimp  in space.
LIFE presents rare and previously unpublished photographs taken before,  during, and after Ham’s wild ride — pictures that capture an era when  technology, politics, ideology, and propaganda converged in an  era-defining struggle known as the Space Race.
