The Question: Which one of these animals has NOT been sent to space?
Humans have sent lots and lots of animals skyward: dogs, cats, mice, fish, and monkeys, as well as a tortoise, spider, guinea pig, frog, and more. But a duck has yet to journey beyond Earth’s atmosphere into the final frontier. One did, however, reach the sky. In 1783, French aviation pioneer Pilatre De Rozier placed a duck, a sheep, and a rooster in a hot air balloon to see how non-avian animals would react to flight.
The Answer: The correct answer is Duck.
