Alas, she was the first in a line of unsung Soviet space martyrs. But she got more international press than the heroic Russian humans that died.
There was just a piece about Laika on NPR'sStudio 360... Warning- Though very good, it is also sad.

Yeah, the Soviets did lose quite a few people. :(

I might read the NPR article later-- I should be apartment hunting, and later going for a test and (hopefully) interview for the job I lost earlier in the year.

As Well You Should! Huzzah! Happy (belated) Birthday, O My Mittenland Droog, thou. Angel trumpets and Devil trombones sing thee to thy sleep.

Sorry I missed the fun at Decomp...but WARNING...Ah knows where you lives. (within 50 miles or so.)
