Part of the Project Mercury chimp couch display is a group of photos of monkeys and chimps who have flown in space. One such monkey is Miss Baker, who flew in a Jupiter missile re-entry vehicle (nose cone) launched from LC-26.

Miss Baker lived at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center for many years and is buried on the USSRC grounds. The USSRC also displays the couch into which Miss Baker was strapped during her flight.
