Question:What was the first animal to land on the moon?.Answer:No animal has ever landed on the moon yet.  Question:What was the first animal sent into space? Answer: A dog named Laika was the first animal sent into space. The small female Russian Samoyed, who traveled in a pressurized cabin aboard the Soviet artificial satellite Sputnik 2,was launched on November 3, 1957. Laika became the first living creature to go into orbit.Unfortunately, the trip ended badly for the pioneering dog—she died a few days into the voyage. As the Soviets experimented with dogs, the United States decided on a monkeys for a flight in 1958. Two female monkeys, Able and Baker, made the American maiden voyage into orbit aboard the spacecraft Jupiter on May 28, 1959. They returned alive, having traveled 300 miles (483 kilometers).

No animal has ever landed on the moon! Animals have been in space since the 1940's. First of all fruit flies were sent up in a US launched rocket, called V2, in the year 1946. But the first animal in space was Albert II on 14th June 1949. (The first Albert had died). Albert II died on impact because his parachute failed !

Various monkeys were sent into space during the 1950's and 60's. The first animal to actually go into orbit was a soviet dog called Laika who was a Russian launched dog, but he died on the flight. Even the French launched Felix the cat into space and he survived the trip.

When animals are launched into space they are usually fitted with sensors to ascertain the effects which the flight has on their bodies. They are anaesthetised as well, so that they do not become over wrought by the experience and die too suddenly. So the animals do not experience undue suffering by being launched into space.
