Tribute to space dog Laika

I read about this dog and I am in agreement with anyone who thinks that animals should not be put at risk. If a human thinks we should go land on Sun send that idiot first. Not some animal that can’t defend itself or voice their disapproval.

But what you have to ask yourself is Frank: Is a human life worth more or less than an animal’s?

equal in my book. Animals can feel pain and love - they certainly give unconditional love unlike humans. Why destroy those bonds by thinking they are less than us?

I’d sooner strap a bomb to our politicians before sending another animal into space. :wink:

Fair enougth; I wasn’t disagreeing with you earlier, I just wanted to know what your views were.

thanks for asking I don’t mind explaining my views.
