Laïka was the first living creature to go into space. The Soviet space programme had chosen this three years old stray dog, found wandering the streets of Moscow, to embark on board the Spoutnik 2 on 3rd November 1957 in Baïkonour. Laïka survived the take-off and orbiting phases, but died within a few hours. The event rallied animal rights activists around the globe.
