Caption: Space dog. Space dog Kozyavka ("beauty") in her spacesuit. This dog was to be sent into space aboard a Soviet Korabl Sputnik ("spaceship satellite") on 22 December 1960, along with the dog Damka. However the booster's upper rocket stage failed, forcing the flight to be abandoned. The dogs were safely recovered after their unplanned sub-orbital flight. Photographed in 1959.
