Description

Space Cat Mug. Delight your kids with our adorable and exclusively designed Space Cat range! Our Space Cat range takes inspiration from the French feline Félicette, the first cat to have been sent into space by any country and currently the only cat to have been into space and survived. Bone China, Hand Decorated in the Staffordshire Potteries, Made Exclusively for the Science Museum.

On November 18th 1963 Félicette was sent into space on the French research rocket Véronique AGI from the Colomb Bacar rocket base in the Algerian Sahara desert, 7 out of the 15 Véronique rockets made would carry live animals and were made for various forms of biological research. Félicette's non-orbital flight lasted around 15 minutes and reached a height of 156 kilometres before her capsule safely parachuted back to Earth. There have been various other space missions involving animals, the most notable of these being Laika, the soviet space dog who in 1957 was launched into space aboard Sputnik 2.

The mug measures H8.5cm x D7.8cm
