Did NASA Cancel Cruel Monkey Experiments? Opposing Views by PETA 20 Oct 10, PETA has obtained government documents showing that in August 2010, the Brookhaven National Laboratory—where NASA has been planning to fund a study to blast monkeys with radiation—made a decision about whether or not to move forward with the cruel project.
