The first animal in space ever


WORLD'S FIRST
ANIMAL IN SPACE

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first animal in space?

On November 03 1957 the Russians launched Sputnik 2 with a unique passenger onboard, the world's first animal in space, Laika, the out of this world Russian space dog.

Sputnik 2 orbited Earth for six days before the fuel was depleted and on the seventh day Laika was put to sleep.

On April 14 1958, after 2,570 orbits, Sputnik 2 finally re-entered the Earth's atmosphere.

In Laika's honor many countries issued stamps proving the point that every dog must have it's day.

If you noticed in the first paragraph we used the word 'unique'. This brings us to a totally unrelated silly riddle:

Q: How do you catch a unique rabbit?

A: Unique on him!

Q: How do you catch a tame rabbit?

A: Tame way, Unique on him!


Laika
