Just wondering: Why is this man a hero for doing something a Soviet dog managed 46 years ago?
Not to mention the Space Monkey immortalized by John Prine.
The difference is that the dog 46 years ago (Laika) didn’t survive.
It’s a sad story, especially for a dog person like me.
True ’nuff. Just makes the pooch all the more heroic vis-a-vis our latecomer.
I was scratching my head about this story, too.
“In an upcoming National Geographic special, a Chinese astronaut re–enacts the flights of early space pioneers.”
