Among with the first group of complex animals to survive their trip to space, Strelka and Belka were once strays. They went through space travel training together and were in space for an entire day aboard Sputnik 5. There were also rats, fungi and flies along for their trip. After their safe landing, Strelka would later go on to have a litter of healthy puppies, one of them was gifted to the United States president at the time.
