    Laika (Russian: Лайка;[a] c. 1954 – November 3, 1957) was a Soviet space dog who became one of the first animals in space, and the first animal to orbit the Earth. Laika, a stray dog from the streets of Moscow, was selected to be the occupant of the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik 2 that was launched into outer space on November 3, 1957.
    While the Americans used Chimps, the Russians used a smarter animal... a dog!

    She was a dog. The first living thing to be sent into space. She got nicknamed Muttnik. Sadly she didn't survive and burned up on re-entry.

    I do :-) I don't quite remember Sputnik (I was only 3) , but my older brothers sure do. I do remember Gagarin though, and Shepard - kind of a local boy (I live in NH). I was crazy about the Space Program from childhood, and remember a lot of the earliest achievements.

    I named one of my many, many dogs over the years 'Laika' in her honor...

    Sad thing is, it looks like Russian or Mandarin will be the first language spoken on Mars.
