    I'm an old gay of 47 years, I remember a documentary in the early 80's that gave me night horrors as a little kid. It was a black and white docu film about the early attempts at space flight. In one scene, people in lab coats unscrewed the cover of a recovered re-entry vehicle, and underneath is the corpse of a charred dog strapped on its seat which looked similarly that of OP's pic. Please tell me and give me closure--- was that thing that I saw Laika?

      Yes

      First animal but not first one that stayed alive - as much of a non achievement as launching a man to his death with a cannon and saying “first human flight”

    Couldn't they have implemented some sort of euthanasia mechanism?

      It would have defeated the purpose, they wanted to see how long she would survive.

      Scientists are a bit screwy like that. Back in the Apollo era NASA had a mission-over team. The idea being that if Buzz and Neil were stranded they would publicly declare the mission a catastrophic failure, to spare the public knowledge of them dying slowly*, then hand them over to the mission-over team. What was their purpose? It was to convince the two of them to do experiments that you wouldn't be able to do if the subject expected to survive. There was a whole slew of tests depending on how compliant/manipulatable they were. Ever wondered how long Neil would survive if he took of his helmet on the surface of the moon? NASA had a plan to find out...

      *Conspiracies abound, this supposedly happened with the Titan submersible. There was to be no public declaration that it had been found if there were survivors on board and there was no way to rescue them before the air ran out.

      She was murdered for show. All she did was die, there was nothing learned. And the sovietard space program never even made it to putting a dog on the moon. Russians are honestly just moronic.

              But this is a thread about Laika.
              Which was factually sent into space by Russian.
              And was pretty clearly a dumb thing to do.
              If Burgers do the same (and I'm sure they have), you can start a thread about the poor animal they tortured, that's no issue.

    >Laika was found as astraywandering the streets of Moscow a week before the launch.Soviet scientists chose to use Moscow strays since they assumed that such animals had already learned to endure conditions of extreme cold and hunger.She was a5kg (11lb)mongrelfemale, approximately three years old.

    >As the technology to de-orbit had not yet been developed, Laika's survival was never expected. She died of overheating hours into the flight, on the craft's fourth orbit.

    >To adapt the dogs to the confines of the tiny cabin, they were kept in progressively smaller cages for periods of up to twenty days. The extensive close confinement caused them to stop urinating or defecating, made them restless, and caused their general condition to deteriorate.Laxativesdid not improve their condition, and the researchers found that only long periods of training proved effective. The dogs were placed incentrifugesthat simulated the acceleration of a rocket launch and were placed in machines that simulated the noises of the spacecraft. The dogs were trained to eat a special high-nutrition gel that would be their food in space.

    >Yazdovsky made the final selection of dogs and their designated roles. Laika was to be the "flight dog"–a sacrifice to science on a one-way mission to space.

    >Before the launch one of the mission scientists took Laika home to play with his children. In a book chronicling the story of Soviet space medicine, Vladimir Yazdovsky wrote, "Laika was quiet and charming... I wanted to do something nice for her: She had so little time left to live."

    >"After placing Laika in the container and before closing the hatch, we kissed her nose and wished her bon voyage, knowing that she would not survive the flight."

    >In 2008, a small monument to Laika depicting her standing atop a rocket was unveiled near the military research facility in Moscow that prepared her flight. She also appears on theMonument to the Conquerors of Spacein Moscow.

              I mean God fricking forbids that you figure out that if you can somehow monitor the vitals of a dog remotely, you should be able to monitor instrument readings, and we kinda have a good ballpark of how long people takes to cook anyways already?
              Also, Ukraine is an Wauf tragedy.

      I can see webms of people begging for their lives as they're about to be brutally murdered, read about the most heart-wrenching tragedies happening to innocent people and I don't feel a thing but I actually choked up reading these two lines.
