Belka and Strelka 50 years Ago…

Belka and Strelka were two dogs who were onboard the Sputnik-5 spacecraft when it entered into orbit on August 19, 1960. They circled the Earth 17 times and then returned home.

Accompanying them were two rats and forty mice…

These furry little creatures are heroes in Russia…

It has been exactly 50 years since this happened. So watch the movie and learn a little bit about Soviet History!

Earlier in March, Sveta and I watched the movie that came to the big screen in Russia’s first 3D computer-animated movie, “Belka and Strelka: Star Dogs

We liked it and was very cute..

Windows to Russia!
