Fe, Fi, Fo, Fum, and Phooey

Fe, Fi, Fo, Phooey were five mice who traveled from Earth and circled the Moon 75 times on the 1972 Apollo 17 mission. NASA gave them identification numbers A3326, A3400, A3305, A3356, A3352, their nicknames were given by the Apollo 17 crew, Eugene Cernan, Harrison Schmitt, Ronald Evans; the four male mice, one female mouse, Evans orbited the Moon for six days and four hours in the Apollo command module America as Cernan and Schmidt performed the Apollo program's last Moon excursions. One of the mice died during the trip, the four others were killed and dissected for their intended biological information upon their successful return from the Moon; the three astronauts and the five mice were the last Earthlings to orbit the Moon. Evans and the five mice share two living-being spaceflight records: the longest amount of time spent in lunar orbit, the most lunar orbits traveled. Apollo 17 launched December 7, 1972, returned to Earth on December 19. A biological cosmic ray experiment carried the five pocket mice, a species chosen for the experiment because they had well documented biological responses.

Some advantages of the species included their small size, their ease of maintenance in an isolated state, their proven capability of withstanding environmental stress. The mice, Fe, Fi, Fo, Phooey, had been implanted with radiation monitors under their scalps to see whether they would suffer damage from cosmic rays. Four of the five mice survived the flight. After their return to Earth, the four remaining live mice were killed and dissected, although lesions in the scalp and liver were detected they appeared to be unrelated to one another, were not thought to be the result of cosmic rays. No damage was found in the mice's viscera. At the time of the publication of the Apollo 17 Preliminary Science Report their brains had not yet been examined, subsequent studies however showed no significant effect on the mice's brains. Animals in space Zond 5, a Soviet space program circumlunar voyage in September, 1968, by two tortoises and assorted small plants and insects, they were the first and only other non-human lifeforms to both fly to the vicinity of the Moon and to return safely Fee-fi-fo-fum, the namesake portion of the English fairy tale "Jack and the Beanstalk"

Opened 34 years ago in 1986, it is home to the Montana Grizzlies, a member of the Big Sky Conference and a team in Division I FCS, its infilled SprinTurf playing field is twenty feet below ground level at an elevation of 3,190 feet above sea level and runs in the traditional north–south orientation. The press box is above the west sideline and lights were added for the 2012 season, it is the largest all-purpose stadium in the state of Montana. The stadium is named after construction magnate Dennis Washington, a Montanan who donated $1 million to finance the stadium's construction in 1985; the inaugural game came in mid-season in 1986, the Griz have a record of 199–30 at the venue, through the 2017 season. Montana has gone undefeated at home in eleven of those seasons; the current seating capacity is 25,217 and it has been expanded three times, most in 2008 with an upper deck expansion of 2,000 seats on the east side.

The original capacity in 1986 was 12,500 permanent seats on the sidelines with open grass seating behind the end zones, an approximate capacity of 15,000, weather-permitting. Permanent seating for the end zones was installed in 1995, which brought the seating to 18,845. Corner seating in the north end zone opened in 2003 and the most recent expansion in 2008 to the east grandstand brought the capacity to 25,217. A new attendance record was set in 2015 when ESPN and four-time defending national champion North Dakota State opened the FCS season on August 29 and drew 26,472; the previous record was 26,352, set in 2014 against rival Montana State on November 22. Infilled SprinTurf was installed in 2001, replaced in 2008. For its first fifteen seasons, the playing surface was natural grass. With the addition of the artificial turf in 2001, the playing surface was renamed "John Hoyt Field." After 15 seasons of "SprinTurf", The playing surface in WGS was replaced with multi-color "FieldTurf" in the summer of 2016.

After Grizzly Field installed "FieldTurf" in their new stadium, "FieldTurf" pitched the University with a new football field and within a month, it was approved by the Board of Regents and installed. The video screen GrizVision, was installed in 2002 in the south end zone. Before Washington–Grizzly Stadium, the Grizzlies played off-campus at "new" Dornblaser Field from 1968–86. Prior to 1968, Montana played on-campus at "old" Dornblaser Field from 1920–67; the old field was at the site of the Mansfield Library. Prior to 1920, Montana played its home games at a field in downtown Missoula, near the former Missoulian newspaper building.
