The never-known and hurtful ending of “animal” astronauts into space
January 25 2019, 3:48 PM
Most of the animals involved in testing the universe share tragic result.

You’ve probably heard people mention the first dogs and cats to wear the “honorable coat”. They became “the first creature to fly into space.” You know that is a very special mission. But, have you ever wondered about the outcome after boarding the expedition.

1. Laika and  Belka – Strelka

Laika is the dog, as well as the first animal to fly to and touch the Earth orbit. Laika’s mission at the time was to become Yuri Gagarin’s “flight attendant” in 1961. It was only the second time this artificial satellite had been placed in orbit with a living organism. Sputnik 2 opens the door for more people to explore the vast space outside Earth, but also kills astronauts within eight to nine hours of their departure. The temperature rise too high, reaching 400 degrees Celsius with the lack of oxygen and water has made Laika permanently unable to return to the ground anymore.

Fortunately, these two dogs survived and returned to Earth the next day

Three years later, on July 19, 1960, Russia continued to add pairs of dogs called Belka and Strelka to space. This time, the scientists put them in two different storage compartments, which were connected by a window on a spacecraft. Along with Belka – Strelka travels into space as seeds, mushrooms, trees, mice and flies. Fortunately, these two dogs survived and returned to Earth the next day.

2. Monkey Albert I, II, III, IV …

Finally, only Albert VI survived the journey. However, while waiting out of the narrow cabin, Yorick also stopped breathing because of heat

In the late 1940s, the United States began putting the monkey on a V-2 rocket because it had a identical system like humans. On June 14, 1949, Albert II became the first monkey in the world to fly into space. However, the accident happened and Albert II died of a crash while flying back to Earth. Other monkeys continue to be brought up in space with the hope of surviving if no errors appear. Finally, only Albert VI survived the journey. However, while waiting out of the narrow cabin, Yorick also stopped breathing because of heat.

3. Cats Félicette

Félicette, spent 15 minutes at a height of 200 km above Earth in a Véronique AG1 liquid-fuel rocket

The scientists applied humanitarian deaths for it to study the physiological effects of the trip

In October 1963, France took the first cat into space. This cat, named Félicette, spent 15 minutes at a height of 200 km above Earth in a Véronique AG1 liquid-fuel rocket. Despite returning safely to the Earth, Félicette was nurtured for the next few months in the space program lab. Later, the scientists applied humanitarian deaths for it to study the physiological effects of the trip.
