Book Review
Exploring the life and death of one of the most famous dogs in history, LAIKA presents a simple question: was the technological knowledge gained after the launch of Sputnik II worth the loss a dog like Kudryavka? Abadzis presents the facts with a detached kind of compassion, knitting together disparate narratives with the unifying thread of Kudryavka’s story. Thoroughly researched, LAIKA gives an intimate look at the people surrounding an event that would ultimately change the world. This is a must-read for anyone who’s interested in the history of spaceflight.
