Eat Your Way To A Happy Halloween At Fall-O-Ween Fest, Go Flex With Post Malone At The Bomb Factory And Put On Some Black Lipstick With Chicano Batman.

Neil Armstrong’s legacy for being the first to walk on the moon will go down in space and science history, alongside Buzz Aldrin, and even Laika, the first dog to launch into orbit. But what about Félicette, the first feline to experience weightlessness?

In 1963, Félicette, along with a dozen other cats, was put through intense space-like simulation tests to determine their comfortability to the unique forces on the other side of the atmosphere. The Centre National d’études Spatiales, France’s version of NASA, determined that Félicette was most suitable for space travel based on her positive reactions to these space tests, which included a ride in a device that spins so fast it creates a potentially strong force outward from the axis.

And off she was. A 12 minute ride, 97 miles above the Earth, with five minutes spent weightless.

So after all of this training, testing and orbiting, you’d think Félicette would come home to catnip and toy mice, right? Wrong. Our beloved astrocat was euthanized shortly after her valuable contributions to the knowledge of space so her body could be observed and studied. A true innovator, tossed aside with no recognition. And to twist the already deeply penetrated knife, the little remembrance of her existence is often misattributed to a male cat named Felix.

Luckily, British advertising executive, Matthew Serge Guy, has created a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a statue in her honor. While you’re at it, get your friends together sometime this week to go out to one of these events and have a drink in honor of the lovely Félicette. — Lauren Keuning
