Dear Mrs. Roll,

I have an important update and call to action regarding our year-long efforts to cancel NASA’s proposed radiation experiments involving live monkeys.

Just yesterday, the website NASAWatch released documents (PDF)

http://images.spaceref.com/news/2010/Brookhaven.decision.pdf

indicating that Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) director Samuel Aronson, Ph.D., informed the Department of Energy (DOE) of his decision regarding the use of monkeys in space radiation research. While much of the document is blacked out, the information that remains gives us hope that Dr. Aronson and DOE have made the right decision.

Now more than ever, we need to make sure that BNL and DOE know that the public opposes this research. If you haven’t already, please call or e-mail Secretary of Energy Steven Chu and ask him to cancel these experiments immediately.

We will update you as we learn more. Stay tuned!

Best regards,

Noah Gittell

Research and Education Programs Coordinator

P.S. Secretary Chu can stop these experiments today. Ask your family and friends to take action.
