Pchyolka and Mushka

Pchyolka ("Little Bee") and Mushka ("Little Fly") spent a day in orbit on December 1, 1960 on board Korabl-Sputnik-3 (Sputnik 6) with "other animals", plants and insects. Due to a navigation error, their spacecraft disintegrated during re-entry on December 2 and all died. Many thanks to goldenbat for this card!
