Monkeyface Mace (Mace to his mates) has been to space. Several times. Being part of France’s Interstellar Space Trial Exploration Team, FISTPET, Mace has had the privilege of traveling to Haumea (a planet shaped like an egg), and the lesser known satellite planetoids MakiMaki and Eris1. Mace decided to become a space explorer after reading about Albert II. Albert II was the first monkey rocketed into space, having single-handedly commandeered the US-launched V-2 rocket on June 14, 1949.
