May 28th marked the 50th anniversary of the first successful return of live animals from space. The event combines so many of CSTM's favorite topics: monkeys, space, the cold war, media hoohah, heroism, men with crewcuts. How could you ask for anything more? But, do ask, dear listener. In this week's edition of CSTM, we not only commemorate this historic moment but we keep poking at the banking mess, reach into the bottomless Grab Bag, and, of course, begin with a mess o' covers.
