Laika, first dog in space

The first world power on earth, the USSR achieved another milestone by sending the first dog in space. Or you can say that USSR first sent an animal in space. The key feature of human nature is to explore new things all the time. And achievement is the ultimate truth of the exploration. After launching the first satellite, Sputnik 1, the USSR tried something new to achieve. And so the Soviet Russia decided to send a dog into space in order to see the aftermath of the incident.


Laika was the Soviet space dog, who was the first animal sent into space. She was also the first animal to move around the earth. This stray dog is found in the street of Moscow.

There were several reasons regarding the selection of the Laika.



The reasons are:

    • One valuable reason was scientists of Moscow thought that the stray dogs could bear the extreme atmosphere, that is very cold and hunger. When Laika was adopted to train for the space journey, she was barely 11 pounds, and her age was three years. The way is called Laika was monitored phone number tracker. This program works through satellite has no connection to the smartphone.
    • One important fact regarding Laika is the Soviet personnel gave her many different names. She was the only occupant of the famous Sputnik 2, the second Soviet spacecraft. This spacecraft was launched on November 3, in 1957. This spacecraft was settled into outer space of the earth.
    • Currently, a major development is done regarding the space technology. Even you can acquire all the details regarding the spacecraft in your home from television or the internet. But it was not same at the time of the journey of the Sputnik 2 spacecraft. The journey of Laika was prepared using only suggestions and theoretical research. The scientists were completely unaware about the result after sending Laika into space.
    • One important reason behind sending Laika into space is that the scientists wanted to see whether human beings can survive in space or not. According to some scientists, it was difficult for the humans to survive in the outer space. So, it was essential to discover whether it was possible for living beings to survive in space or not.
    • One important part of the experiments was to see whether a living being can survive even after bearing the microgravity in the outer space or not. The mission revealed some facts. Scientists understood some very important equations. After this journey, space scientists from several countries prepared properly for the space journey.
    • After this journey, the world has seen several space missions, which consists human beings as the occupant of the spacecraft.


  • But one bitter truth regarding Laika is there too. Laika died from overheating in the spacecraft. Even the key reason is not yet revealed. Though the most valid reason so far is the overheating, until 2002 all the people believed that she was dead due to the unavailability of the oxygen. In 2008 the Russian authority built a monument of Laika in Moscow near the military research authority.

Several reports and researches were made after the death of Laika, but the biggest fact is Laika is the pioneer of the current space development in the world.

Guide: How do I choose my first DSLR

Guide: How do I choose my first DSLR and what accessories are useful


I remember 6 years ago i wanted to buy my first SLR. I knew i could raise my allowance money in, so i expected a time when parents were to help me. I remember that every day i looked on Youtube to hands – ons with the camera that i had chosen. It was a Nikon  D40 which i already knew by heart without ever see him in the flesh. My recommendation is to start looking at a D – SLR kit. I mean a package consisting of a body and a goal. The objective of kit is very well optimized DSLR   for the device that comes along. It will be extremely useful to begin with, will help you see you are limited and you can picture him in almost all situations. Also you can buy on the basis of the following objective, already knowing what you want to change and improve.

What are the main features of a DSLR?

Sensor: the most D – SLRs on the market have similar size sensors. On the surface this sensor pixels are found that give the image resolution. Currently, D – SLRs starts from 12 MP and can reach up to 24 MP. What you can do with 24 megapixels you can do with 12. The difference will not see so much in photo quality, but rather how much you can then cut out of them. The large number of megapixels also helps you when you wan to resize photographs and hiding image noise. However, the difference is not extremely high, which is why the number of MP would be the main criterion.

Viewfinder: I personally prefer the optial viewfinder that i see with the naked eye. Elctronic viewfinder helps you see the picture exactly as it will go, but ofter comes with a delay of the image and can be tiring. That happens entry – level cameras. The most advanced electronic viewfinder had reached another level and could be considered helpful.

Focus system: how many focus points have? 9 or 11 focus points will be enough, but the more thay are, the more you will be easier to choose where the clarity when shooting. Easier because chances subject may be one of the focus points are higher. DSLR

The list goes on, but probably many of the details are not so useful when you want to take this D – SLR. The price will be an important factor in choosing the model, but it is good to grab to fo through some of the specification above to be sure that the choice is the right one.  The next step after you have already used the kit is to buy another one. From the moment you enter a passion in the blood that desire to be there quite often. Willingness you still get a goal. And another one. But here not everyone will talk about next. We will talk stricly next objective after that to get the kit lens.
