VK 10. 10. 2016
Vkontakte, the Russian Facebook, celebrated its 10th anniversary.
The social network, Vkontakte, was created in 2006 by Pavel Durov.
vk.com has partnered with the Russian space agency Roscosmos to become the first social networking website to operate in space via a robot dog.
In 2017, VK and Russian space agency are going to use the robotic version of the social network’s mascot, Spotty the Dog, as the ‘fourth crew member’ for the March flight to the International Space Station. Inspired by the Soviet space dog program, Spotty is going to follow in footsteps of the legendary dog Laika, the first animal in space, and become the first robot dog to orbit the planet.
