Buying Your Canine this €8,000 ($10,500) Dog Space Suit is Important
During the famous 20th century Space Race various animals were sent into space before humans ventured themselves.
The United States used chimpanzees because of their similarity to humans.
On the other hand, the USSR elected to use small dogs instead because of their willingness to stay seated for extended periods of time.
This is one of the suits the Russian Space Dogs used.
This suit was used to prepare and train the dogs Belka and Strelka who rode on the Korabl-Sputnik 2 Mission August 19, 1960!
The spacecraft carried the two dogs, 40 mice, two rats, and a camera which took photos of the dogs and was the first successful round-trip to space where all the animals returns unharmed.
In fact, the dog Strelka had a litter of puppies a year later, one of which were given to First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy!
