Sputnik and Telstar changed communications. Yuri Gagarin and Neil armstrong pioneered space. Between came 1960’s two dogs Belka and Strelka. The computer-animated Russian film Space Dogs is loosely based on their true story.
Pushel, son of Belka, arrives at Kennedy’s White House to tell the story. His mother had been a circus dog who wanted to fly. On the street she met stray mongrel Strelka. The two became an unlikely space program team. Their adventures training, setbacks, mission, and successful return to earth make for family fare.
Bonuses include a slide show, original movie trailer, and a downloadable activity kit. However, real life archive film of the Space Dog star dogs and the U. S. S. R. space program is the best special feature clip of history. Who would have believed things changed for mankind in the fifty years that followed?
