PETA is jumping for joy, since they have won their ongoing battle with NASA to stop experiments on monkeys!
These radiation experiments were planned for Brookhaven Institute in New York. In PETA's language the monkeys would be, "isolated in cages and subjected to years of behavioral experiments to measure the damage caused by the radiation. Such damage likely would have included brain damage, cataracts, cancerous tumors, loss of motor control, and early death."
NASA has not yet confirmed that they experiments will be called off, yet they have not denied it either.
Well, as of now, congratz PETA! You just saved some monkeys!
