On #ThisDayinHistory 1957, The Soviet Union launches the first animal into space—a dog name Laika —aboard the Sputnik 2 spacecraft #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.03: Laika was, like most dogs recruited for the Soviet Space Program, a stray living on the streets of Moscow: While the plan was to send her into orbit, there wasn’t a way to bring her down…….She was expected to survive for eight to 10 days #AceNewsDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7343 Sadly, Laika didn’t even last a full day, living for only a few hours after takeoff………Her craft wasn’t sufficiently insulated and she started overheating and becoming stressed………Her death was kept a secret though and fake news of Laika’s safety was a regular feature of official Russian broadcasts………At least a dozen more Russian dogs were launched into space in preparation for the first manned Soviet space mission, and at least five of these dogs died in flight………..On April 12, 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to travel into space, aboard the spacecraft Vostok 1………He orbited Earth once before landing safely in the USSR. #Laika #AceNewsDesk reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News
