520    "Meet Belka and Strelka, the two dogs who changed the face
       of space history and became international celebrities in 
       the process! In 1960, two stray dogs were plucked from the
       streets of Moscow to become space pioneers. This quirky 
       and delightful picture book tells the incredible true 
       story of these heroic strays. Selected from a number of 
       potential canine cosmonauts, Belka and Strelka are put 
       through their paces on the ground, as they practice rocket
       simulations and wearing spacesuits, before being launched 
       into outer space as the first ever living creatures to 
       successfully orbit the Earth. Miraculously, the dogs 
       survive the mission and upon their return embark on a tour
       of the USSR, clad in their carefully tailored jumpsuits - 
       one red, one green - becoming international celebrities in
       the process. As for their legacy, less than a year after 
       their safe return the Soviet space programme felt 
       confident enough to send the first human into space." --
