    Journey into space: Man's best friend was first.

    When someone says it's a dog's life, it's worth remembering that On 3rd November 1957, a mongrel (street dog) achieved a historical milestone in Man's quest for space supremacy.

    Laika (Lyka) a Russian stray dog from Moscow was selected for the Sputnik 2 launch into outer space. Around that time may never believe animals or even man could survive.Unfortunately, this little dog died of overheating but made nine orbits around the earth, giving valuable data that made could be sent to space. She has many monuments and stamps released by many countries in her honour.

    In an interview yesterday, One of the biologists from that program Adilay Kotovskaya, yesterday has fondly remembered the sacrifice Lyka made which helped Russia in the early stages of the space race. Few years after Lyka's space flight, On 12th April 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first man to fly into space.

    Thanks to Lyka, the second time we could send a monkey to space, which returned safely.
    We never knew about the space weather and pressure data before Lyka because no organic material was ever sent before. There is no doubt that we owe our space era to a mongrel.

    The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.

    Yes, it is true. We should all be grateful to Lyka for the sacrifice done by this animal and made us advance in concurring the space. Before Lyka gone there we don't know anything about the weather or atmosphere there. So we have a lot to give in return to mongrel.This is the first living organism sent there. It is good to note that yesterday in an interview One of the biologists from that program Adilay Kotovskaya yesterday has remembered the sacrifice Lyka made which helped Russia in the early stages of the space race.
