dog Laika monument

This monument is made of bronze in the form of a large rocket that turns into an open palm, on which a figurine of a dog is installed. The little fearless pooch looks openly and proudly at the world, without even knowing what a terrible fate awaits her.

It was known in advance that Laika would not return from flight alive, if only because at that time they had not yet developed a satellite landing technology that would survive the passenger in it. Laika was supposed to spend a week in orbit, but the dog died from overheating a couple of hours after takeoff. Details of Laika's flight and her death were carefully hidden, and officially reported that the dog had to be put to sleep after landing.

It is noteworthy that the monument to the astronaut dog Laika is installed in a museum located on the island of Crete. Well, cartoons and songs are dedicated to it in our homeland. It is believed that the monument to Laika brings good luck: pet it, put a modest flower on the pedestal, and a lot should improve in your life.
