Summary
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? One Small Step, uncovers the journey of the brave chimponauts, reveals how they were trained for the space program, and how the United States Air Force rewarded the colony for their loyal service. One Small Step : The Story of the Space Chimps is a documentary film produced by David Cassidy and Kristin Davy. It explores the early steps taken by the U.S. to make manned space travel a reality. The role the space chimps played in the time when man first reached the stars and expanded the world beyond the confines of Earth
