Sam (2016) ...and other animals.

I think this is very cool.


Sam, a 12 meter tall monument of a monkey cosmonaut, by sculptor Denis Prasolov.  It was placed in Kronvald Park, Riga in Latvia.  It pays tribute to all the animals that died in spaceflight survival tests before manned missions were attempted.

There are also some other versions of Sam and other animal cosmonauts in alternative format.


 
....and others to view here:


Enjoy
