Laika by nelsoncosentino Laika by nelsoncosentino
Primeiro ser vivo terrestre a orbitar o planeta Terra, morreu entre cinco e sete horas depois do lançamento. Mas na minha ilustração ela ainda tá viva, e saiu da cápsula pra dar um visu / First living being to orbit the planet Earth, died between five and seven hours after launch. But in my illustration she's still alive, and left the capsule to take a look.

Really stunning. This honestly made me cry a little... I love her expression and how the composition focuses on her looking out into the universe, seeing something that we cannot. Beautiful work, I found this very moving.

I first heard of Laika by watching the film "My Life as a Dog" - it still saddens me, and your piece captures the beauty and tragedy of this animal brilliantly. Great work!

It's amazing the power to convey emotions that have an illustration, I was very happy with all the commotion. And just for the suffering of the animal and mostly won everything after that happened in space exploration that Laika deserves the honor. But do not condemn science nor human so the use of animals is an extreme case where there is no alternative, and sometimes for the greater good and to save human life was the price to be paid. That would be our hypocrisy, we are the beneficiary, and if so, are ALL guilty. And again, so all my respects.

A true pioneer, if an unwilling one. Just or not, her sacrifice helped pave the way for human space travel. She will forever be remembered as a tragic hero. Here's to you you magnificent creature. :salute:

It's absolutely beautiful, it's unfortunate how sad her story is.  If only this could have actually happened.
