dad: buddy, put on this hard hat 'cause i'm going to drop some knowledge on you!! who were the first earthlings to orbit the moon? two tortoises in the russian space program! two tortoises in the russion space program!
Um… I’d like to know where the USSR got the pair of tortoises.
But that’ll never penetrate his brain with a hard hat on!
And then a dog.
I think they survived.
The hard shells hitting the hard hat will definitely make a lasting impression! Scared the heck out of him.
The Soviets probably traded a couple of their legendary tractors for those tortoises (which of course means whoever got the tractors got the worst of the deal……)
BTW, is that true? Tortoises were the first … I thought it was a dog… interesting…
The first to orbit the moon.The first in space was the dog Laika. She didn´t survive, but I don´t know if she came back.
