Rocket Dog

Last Friday, the Russian government unveiled a monument to Laika, the Sputnik II mutt who became the first living creature launched into space. While the tribute is a nice gesture, erected in Moscow near the military research facility that prepared for Laika's flight, I can't really think too much about it - it's just too sad.

Rest in peace, Laika.
