Best Answer

The first animals to cross the Karman line at an altitude of 100 km did so in a V2 rocket on 20 February 1947. They were a bunch of fruit flies.

The first mammal in space was apparently a rhesus monkey named Albert II on 14 June 1949, in a U.S.-launched V-2, (after the failure of the original Albert's mission on ascent). Albert I reached only 30-39 miles (48-63 km) altitude; Albert II reached about 83 miles (134 km). Albert II died on impact after a parachute failure.
