The Second Earth Sputnik
It was the first biological satellite in the world in a pressurized cabin that accommodated dog Laika that flew in November 1957.
Satellite’s scientific hardware made it possible to downlink scientific data from space and receive first indications of Earth’s outer radiation belt.
It was designed by OKB-1 and launched by Sputnik (Satellite) launch-vehicle on November 1957.
