    Does anybody remember Laika? If you do, you're telling showing your age. :)

    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...
