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.
