Beatles Superstar Sir Paul McCartney and NASA have a strong relationship but right now they are involved in some monkey business. The Former Beatle is unhappy about NASA using poor animals for outer space radiation testing. PETA has always stood by its claim that Lab testing is a dangerous thing and most importantly it is inhumane. PETA maintains that lab testing is harmful for lab animals and Sir Paul more than agrees with them.

In a recent letter to the NASA administrator the singer blasted the space agency for funding a research program on the effects of radiation in Spider monkeys. According to Sir Paul, NASA should have the creativity to test the effects of space radiation without putting innocent monkeys to pain.

McCartney reminded Bolden of his good relationship with NASA, which includes a live performance for an orbiting space shuttle. Previously the agency had beamed the song, “Across the Universe" to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the song.

Voicing his concern Paul McCartney said that our efforts to understand the mysteries of universe should not come at the cost of innocent lives and appealed NASA to cancel the controversial experiments immediately. NASA is yet to comment on the matter at hand and we can only hope that it takes the steps necessary to save the monkeys.
