paul mccartney, nasa, animal experimentSir Paul McCartney is a big fan of space exploration. In the past, the well known singer has performed for the crew of STS-114 and even teamed up with NASA to get Beatles music pumped into space, or, to quite literally get Lucy in the sky with diamonds. But this time, Paul is speaking out against NASA.

The space agency is planning to use dozens of squirrel monkeys for harsh radiation experiments. Animal testing to the extreme!

In his letter to the agency, Paul writes, “I believe NASA has the ingenuity to investigate the health effects of space travel without confining and experimenting on animals as was done in the old days. It would be terribly disappointing if in our zeal to explore new frontiers and to learn about the fascinating universe where we live we began to regress in our treatment of the animals with whom we share this planet.”

Is animal testing a good idea? The European Space Agency states it “declines any interest in monkey research,” and various experts say the tests are unnecessary and lack scientific merit. So, basically…no!

We’re happy to hear that McCartney is speaking out on this issue and hope the team at NASA listens to reason!
