Caption: Soviet animal spaceflight tests. Soviet space scientists and engineers inspecting a container with test animals that has parachuted back to the ground following a test flight. During the 1950s and 1960s, numerous suborbital and orbital spaceflights involving dogs and other animals were launched by the Soviet Union. The actual flights were preceded by preparations and training, which included being confined to small spaces for long periods of time, and the use of simulators. Photographed in 1964, at Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan.
