Laika and Sputnik 2

In the second half of the last century, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US) were involved in the space race. In this development race there were many first times for both superpowers.

With the USSR’s Sputnik 2, the dog Laika was the first living creature to be put into orbit. The data collected from this mission paved the way for human space travel.

This model consists of 236 parts and shows Laika and the Sputnik 2 capsule. It commemorates the USSR's achievement of being the first to bring life into orbit. Plus, it gives Laika the credit she deserves.
