Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING

i’m unreasonably freaked out and disturbed by these

Is this in some kind of uncanny valley?? It’s like an uncanny Communist march or something.

And for some reason I can’t help but imagine these things eternally striding across a barren, lifeless world.

Laika (Barker)

Sent on the Sputnik 2, Laika was the first living creature to orbit the Earth. Since there was no technology to de-orbit, she died in space as intended. She died from overheating. Her reports weren’t made public until 2002 so up until then everyone was told that she was euthanised prior to oxygen depletion (the six day mark). Laika has been the topic of ethics and animal cruelty in science for many years. Laika paved the way for human space-flight.

and of course, there’s the comic that tore me to pieces when I had no idea that all of this was true:

The comic is just as heartbreaking. It’s an amazing read
