New Delhi: Today, scientists have made so much progress that even humans get started in space. But did scientists send humans directly into space? Meaning that before this, was anything else sent? After all, how was it possible to send humans? In fact, for the first time in 1947, the Soviet Union sent a fly into space. Ten years later, in 1957, the Soviet Union sent a female dog into space, but Laika died a few hours after the rocket launch.
Laika was killed, but the dog continued to be sent into space by the Soviet Union. For this, the rocket started to be made more secure. In the year 1960, dogs named Strelka and Belka were sent back to space. The most important thing is that both of them return safely to the earth. On the other hand, the US space agency was preparing to send NASA monkeys to space. In 1958, NASA sent a monkey named Gordo into space, but he died. At the same time, NASA sent two monkeys named Baker and Able to space in 1959 and both of them returned safely.
A capsule to keep astronauts alive was tested on a monkey named Sam and Sam passed this test. A chimpanzee named Ham was sent into space after dogs and monkeys. For 6 minutes he faced weightlessness and returned alive. With its help, we came to know how the body works in weightlessness. After all these humans were sent to space. But it is not that organisms are no longer sent into space. In 2007, the European Space Agency sent Tardigrade microbes into space and they lived for 12 days. In such a situation, it can be said that animals and animals have played an important role in reaching the space of humans.
