In April 2008, Russian officials made an opening ceremony of a space rocket monument. The unusual thing about the rocket was a dog figure standing on it. It was not an ordinary dog; it was Laika.
Laika was a Soviet space dog who became the first dog in space and the first animal to orbit the Earth. Having been selected to be the only crew of the Soviet Spacecraft Sputnik 2. It was launched into outer space on November 3, 1957. Laika seemed happy for being a privileged animal.
There was too little information about the impact of spaceflight on living creatures at that time and the technology of that day had not developed enough to turn back. Scientists believed humans would be unable to survive the conditions of outer space. That’s why the experts vievved flights with animals to pave the way for humarı spaceflight.
That is the point where Laika’s mission started. It aimed to provide scientists with some data on how passengers react to spaceflight environments. A military research team prepared Laika’s flight to space and they knew that Laika wouldn’t be able to turn back.
Laika died from overheating hours after the launch and Sputnik 2 exploded in the outer atmosphere in April 1958. However, Laika became an international symbol of triumph for space exploration. A small monument in her honour was built in Moscow.
