For millennia, great apes have ventured into unchartered, remote places. Places where they often had no right to be. Probability of survival next to zero. And yet, millennia after millennia, the Hominidae have continued to flourish on this planet and beyond. The limits of exploration have been pushed repeatedly.
This boxer hash, we pay tribute to one especially great ape: Ham the Astrochimp, the first Hominidae to venture into the final frontier, that vast unknown: Space. Ham the Astrochimp proved that basic human-like tasks could be completed in zero gravity. Fifty-four years on from this pioneering achievement, astronauts, cosmonauts, takinauts and Matthew McConnaughey alike all have Ham to thank for their successful careers.
This boxer, we will retrace Ham’s flight path two-dimensionally over the treacherous void-like hills of HuangHuaCheng, scaling the greatest wall of them all to mimic the turbulence Ham must have felt re-entering the hemisphere, and attempt to mimic basic human tasks, such as imbibing copious amounts of cheap Chinese beer. Fail to drink and risk electrocution of your souls!
