Why did Elon Musk put chips in monkeys?

Prior to taking the giant leap, we sent our monkey cousins into space to investigate the great unknown for us. With little knowledge of how the human body would react to increased altitudes, researchers in the United States sent primates into the sky as test subjects.

Why did the US send monkeys into space?

We have not yet begun clinical trials, so we do not have human safety data, but safety has been central to the design process. The Link, in particular, includes technical innovations designed to improve the safety of the surgical procedure over existing method
