Λάϊκα ..ένα σκυλί κοιτάζει τα άστρα !

Το σύντομο ταξίδι της Λάικα, την έκανε ένα από τα πιο διάσημα σκυλιά του κόσμου. Απεικονίστηκε σε γραμματόσημα σε πολλές χώρες, και μάρκες από τσιγάρα και σοκολάτες είχαν το όνομά της. Τις τελευταίες δεκαετίες, έχει γίνει και όνομα συγκροτημάτων και τραγουδιών. Τον Νοέμβριο του 1997, σαράντα χρόνια μετά την πτήση της Λάικα, ένα μνημείο πεσόντων αστροναυτών ανεγέρθηκε στην Αστρόπολη, το κέντρο εκπαίδευσης των Σοβιετικών αστροναυτών κοντά στην Μόσχα. Σε μία γωνιά του μνημείου υπάρχει και η εικόνα της Λάικα.

η ιστορική πτήση του Alan Shepard… Trajectory of Alan Shepard’s Historic Flight

This Mercury flight was designed to enter space, but not to achieve orbit. Ten years later, at age 47 and the oldest astronaut in the program, Shepard commanded the Apollo 14 mission, piloting the lander to the most accurate landing of the Apollo missions.
He became the fifth and oldest person to walk on the Moon, and the only astronaut of the Mercury Seven to walk on the Moon. During the mission, he hit two golf balls on the lunar surface.
