PETA is pissed:

If the original monkey died and was replaced by a second monkey, PETA will go nuts.

That "astronaut seat" is ridiculous. It looks like something a 3rd grader would assemble in art class.

they are 2 different monkeys from 2 different launches.

the first monkey with the mole was launched in 2011 (and unfortunately parished)

the second monkey was launched just recently and came back alive.

http://www.guardian....an-space-monkey


the original confusion came from the iranian media releasing both pictures of the monkeys without any explanation. and a single british newspaper saw a quick opportunity for a story and without any investigation ran a "story" on it that was quickly spread by other media groups.

the slow explanation still has not gotten through fully it appears.

just on common sense alone; this conspiracy theory doesnt make any sense. If iran wanted to pull a switcharoo~ it would know that it's going to come under immense scrutiny. it would not pick 2 completely different looking monkeys (they are different colors, and one has a distinguishable mole on his face)

they would probably find 2 identical monkeys for the job.

are you vegan?

if so congratulations, you are in a tiny minority.

human beings will always use animals to advance human interests.

even one of the heads of PETA stays alive with diabetes medication that would not have been possible without animal testing.

there are obvious common sense limits. but i personally see nothing wrong in the use of animals to advance science, technology, medicine and food.

I wouldn't mind sending PETA into space.

To save money, they don't even need a return ticket.
