Remarkable survival of Russian space dogs

2 posts in this topic

Before man became brave enough to conquer space himself, canine cosmonauts were sent in our place.

It was a perilous job, with almost half of all dogs destined not to come home.

But two female strays employed in the Soviet space programme, Comet and Shutka, proved to be remarkable survivors.

Yes, I suppose my Laika monument comment didn't belong in the Memoriam pinned thread. Sorry.

I just wanted to acknowledge the part played by non-humans.

"Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is 'Because the animals are like us.' Ask the experimenters why it is morally OK to experiment on animals, and the answer is: 'Because the animals are not like us.' Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction."

Charles R. Magel (1980)
