Iris the Chimpanzee Finds Love and Comfort at New Sanctuary

Three weeks ago, Save the Chimps in Fort Greene, Florida, took in Iris, a female chimp, after PETA investigated into Iris' treatment at the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve and Zoo in Dahlonega.

Three spacefliers lifted off in a Russian Soyuz capsule on Friday, heading to the International Space Station for an orbital stay that will set two records. NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko will spend almost a year on the station, which in Kelly's case will best the U.S. record for longest-duration spaceflight by more than 100 days. The men will undergo intense medical monitoring for studies aimed at determining how ultra-long-term spaceflight affects the human body. Russian cosmonauts have been in space continuously for as long as 437 days, so Kelly and Kornienko won't set a world record.

If he stays in orbit until his scheduled return in October, he'll chalk up an unprecedented cumulative total of nearly 900 days in space. Read »
