Welcome to Librarium Online!
After the story of the astronauts - Report: Drunk astronauts allowed on shuttle - CNN.com - some of us in the dorm (and SA) had a discussion and I don't know how but that topic of Russian testing on the effects of drunkenness in flight and space. The is came up - http://c.photos.cx/launchingpig-e35.jpg -. I was just wondering about everyones thoughts on both of these.
Looks like animal cruelty to me. Of couse, it also looks like it was performed in a time before animal rights activists groups, or technology that could provide acurate, reliable test data without using a live specimen to proxy for a human.
All in all, I say cute pig. squee~
good 'ole Russians. always finding a productive use for their alcohol.
