Feline Astronaut To Be Memorialized

posted by Dave Arlington - 

Cats…in…space!

It really happened on this month back in 1963.

The French space program launched Félicette to an altitude of about 100 miles – and returned her safely in a capsule that parachuted back to Earth.

But, while Ham the chimp and Laika the dog are famous for their space flights, Félicette is unsung. Til now.

A Kickstarter campaign is underway to create a memorial statue to the Astrocat and have it displayed in Paris. Supporters can purchase a replica of a Félicette “autographed” postcard, screen prints, buttons, plaques and tote bags.
