This is a clip from 1947 footage of work undertaken by the Aerospace Medical Research Laboratories. Apparently, this Very Important Space Learning included finding out what happens to cats in space. And now—now we know. Cats do not handle themselves well in weightlessness. Also, no kitties were harmed in the making of this video. Well, except for maybe their pride.
Bonus: Here is another one from the vomit comet in the ’80s.
- Sign a Russian mortgage, get a cat
- Guardians of the Galaxy, re-enacted with cats
- Hello Kitty isn’t an actual cat?
