1977 RUSSIAN SPACE SPUTNIK BRONZE MEMORIAL BADGE. Mint condition. Sputnik 1, the first satellite launched by humans (October 1957), remained in orbit until early 1958, when it fell back and burned in earth's atmosphere. Sputnik 2 carried a dog, Laika, the first living creature to orbit earth; since Sputnik 2 was not designed to sustain life, Laika did not survive the flight. Eight more missions with similar satellites carried out experiments on various animals to test life-support systems and reentry procedures and to furnish data on space temperatures, pressures, particles, radiation, and magnetic fields.
