In addition to those questions, in the same chater: What did Gene Johnson say in his short speech to 91-Tango that might have made them regret volunteering for this mission?

The 91-Tangos are Army animal care technicians. As for claustrophobia, this pertains directly to the space suits and protective coverings that will be required apparel in the monkey house. Other red flags that would deter volunteers would be that there was no hazzard pay, and they were not allowed to tell their families what they were doing.
