Summary

Learn about history through Vlad's stories.

Whilst Russia and America race to be the first to conquer space, Vlad the flea and Strelka the dog are more interested in what they can scavenge on the streets of Moscow. Little do they know that they are about to go on an adventure that will take them out of this world.

Listen to the true story of how dogs Strelka and Belka became the first living beings to travel into space and return safely to Earth to live as celebrities and be worldwide heroes.

Vlad has braved the Great Fire of London, escaped Florence Nightingale, and flown missions in the First World War. This time he is going further than ever before.
