LAIKA Space Dog T-Shirt. The story of Laika is sad but incredible. The first living creature to orbit the Earth in 1957 in a one-way mission was a historic milestone. This small Russian dog, a stray husky-spitz mix, was launched in a small metal unit within Sputnik 2.
Her real name was Kudryavka; she loved to bark and later became known as Laika, “barker” in Russian. She circled the Earth at least a couple of times before it is suspected she died from the heat inside her module; after the unexpected loss of the heat shield.
This t-shirt feels soft, with the right amount of stretch. It’s comfortable and flattering for both men and women. FREE SHIPPING.
