Laika the russian space dog

Curiousity the Nasa space craft have today officially landed safely on planet Mars. To me that is a great thing. But far from great was back in late 1958 in Russia when the stray dog Laika, who was sent in orbit around earth, died a cruel death. To honor Laika and let us remember sacrifices made by unknowing animals, do read this text on Wikipedia giving some sense to the matter http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laika

Its easy to cry reading and thinking over how Laika must have felt absolutly terrified from day one. horrible really.
