The CERMA lab carried out several life sciences spaceflights with Veronique, France's first space traveller (1961) being a rat called Hector. Two more rats flew in 1962 and two cats flew in 1963. The larger Vesta rocket was used to launch two macaque monkeys in 1967.
Two Veronique 61M flights from CSG in 1971 were recorded as `biologie + geophysique' without further details except that a Dr. Lost was the experimenter.
