Tribute to all the Soviet dogs that traveled to space

Illustrator Jess Bradley has drawn an endearing poster that honors Soviet dogs that travel to space.

Since the famous Laika, to the pioneers Tsygan and Dezik, or Ugolyok and Veterok, who traveled in 1951 and spent 22 days in orbit. Some came back alive, others did not. For example, Laika, who had been picked up on the street, became the first terrestrial living being to orbit our planet. The objective was to test the effects of the launch on the organism and ensure the survival of a human crew during space travel. Laika died several hours after the launch as a result of the stress suffered and as a result of the capsule overheating.

But now everyone is together and happy in the poster that you have below in large size:
