One of the Soviet cosmonauts pays tribute to Laika, she was the first mammal in space aboard Sputnik 2 in October 1957. The spacecraft did indeed fail to separate and this created problems with the thermal control system. Laika died from the stress within a few hours but this was not widely known in the West until 2002. Previously Soviet officials stated she was euthanized on day 6 of the mission. See more »


In the show, the proposed Equal Rights Amendment successfully completes the process of ratification as an amendment to the United States Constitution when, on August 24, 1974, Illinois becomes the 37th state to ratify it. Article V of the Constitution requires that an amendment proposed by Congress be ratified by 3/4 of the states. This means that, ever since Hawai'i became the 50th state on August 21, 1959, a successful constitutional amendment requires ratification by 38 rather than 37 states. See more »

Margo Madison: He's drunk.
Sergei Orestovich Nikulov: I am not! Not much.
