Caption: Soviet space dog Strelka seen through the window of the Sputnik-5 capsule. Along with her canine companion Belka, Strelka performed an orbital flight of Earth on 19th August 1960, and returned safely to Earth, the first living creatures to survive such a journey. This reseach paved the way for Yuri Gagarin's spaceflight in April 1961.
