Book description:

"The first Earth-born creature to enter space was Laika, a stray dog from Moscow that blasted off aboard Sputnik 2 on 3 November 1957, heralding the beginning of the space race and an associated propaganda war between the two superpowers of the era, the Soviet Union and the United States.

Edited by the Archive of Modern Conflict together with Christina de Middel and Thomas Mailander, this issue of Amc2 journal contains a cross-section of some of the space-race related images held by the Archive."

I've previously also featured issue 1 of Amc2 journal.
