Sputnik 2, With ‘Laika’, The FIRST Animal In Space, Was Launched This Day, 60-Years Ago; November 3, 1957.
The Sputnik 2 & ‘Laika’ THE DOG!
Wow, I remember it well and can still recall those exciting days. I had just turned 4. It was BIG news in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). We did NOT have TV in the country at that stage, but it was covered, extensively, in the newspapers and radio.
I became a space junkie with the launch of Sputnik — and I guess I still am.
Exciting times. Wow. 60-years ago. But still vivid in my mind.
