It was October 27th, 1957 and Laika was sitting in her cubicle in the space institute at the USSR. She was lying in her favorite basket like a saint and was chewing a piece of wood. She didn’t know what was happening around her and was just happy for the fact that she was left alone in her space without the booming sounds of the rockets and missiles.
Little did she know that the doctors and scientists were actually trying to lubricate her fear of rockets because she was soon going to go off for a very big mission!
Six days had passed, by then and all the preparations were brash. Time was running out and Laika wasn’t to be found anywhere. She wasn’t in her cubicle and everyone searched for her and they did find her in the end trying to escape the institute.
Laika was scared of her mission. Just like any other street mongrel, she feared because her instincts told her that it wasn’t an easy mission – her mission to venture out into space and become the first ever animal to do so.
