Monkey travels in space

LOS ANGELES TIMES, October 8:

One of the passengers in a Soviet spacecraft is fooling around with the equipment, and his monkeyshines may end the flight prematurely.

The passenger is in fact a monkey named Yarosha -- Russian slang for village troublemaker.

Evidently bored on the fifth day of a scheduled 12-day flight, Yarosha slipped out of his harness and took a tour of the spacecraft.

Tass, the Soviet news agency, reported that Yarosha was having a delightful time tampering with all of the equipment within reach.

Watch out, Yarosha; if you break something, they'll probably dock your flight pay.
