Laika dog on Crosscurrents, 11/3

Laika.GaWy_650x360A stray dog Laika from the streets of Moscow was the first animal to orbit Earth on this day in 1957.  Gavin and Wyatt pay their respects to Laika, described as “quiet and charming”, who lost her life on the space flight as the Soviet Union never intended to bring the little dog back to Earth.  You will be spared the fate of Sputnik 2 and assured of a return home by listening to Crosscurrents, 11/3 at 8 a.m.
