Mission[edit]

Veterok and Ugolyok Soviet stamp

It incorporated a re-entry body (capsule) for landing scientific instruments and test objects. It was a biological satellite that made a sustained biomedical experiment with the dogs Veterok and Ugolyok, after 22 days in orbit around the Earth, they were safely landed.[1]

This spaceflight of record-breaking duration was not surpassed by humans until Skylab 2 in June 1973 and still stands as the longest space flight by dogs.[citation needed]
