The peace of God to all that belong to the Light.
This week on October the 4th it was celebrated the World day of Animals and many interesting facts about other alive animated species of earth were
commented and discussed.
One case in particular has attracted my attention for the so important Historic implications.
We all know the incredible contribution that animals have done to civilization, there were multiple species domesticated since the end of Neolithic
times that have given to us companion, physical work, partnership in hunting and unfortunately also feeding humanity with their own sacrifice.
It is also meaningful the enormeous quote of sacrifice of animals used in laboratories for testing since about 200 hundred years ago in diverse
experiments that have pushed the advance of science.
In the same tradition of testing new technologies one of the few privileges civilization has given to animals is also being used as the first
travelers to the outer space preceding any human being, although it was not precisely to honor them.
Do you know who was the very first alive being from this planet to cross the atmosphere in a suborbital flight?
It was not the first Astronaut or Cosmonaut and not the so famous Rhesus Monkey sent in surobital flight on 1949 nor the Dog Laika in 1958 who
certainly was the first animal in orbit, as it was possibly taught to many of us in our school years, but certainly a nuch smaller creature became
long before that the first going out of our world.
On February 2Oth of 1947 in White Sands, New Mexico, using a Nazi German V2 Rocket Captured from Pinamunde on WWII in a container a colony of humble
drosophila fruit flies that became the first living creatures that abandoned the atmosphere and after their unusual parabolic trip came back safely
using a parachute.
First Animal sent to space ever
Those fruit flies if we don't count the so called trip of the Prophet Elijah on a chariot of fire to heaven described in the Bible should be also
the first Gaians to go out of the atmosphere.
Fruit flies were already famous for science long time before that though since were the specie used to develop the fundamental laws of the
theoretical framework of Genetics by the Austrian scientist and priest Gregor Johann Mendel since 1865.
Thanks for your attention
