On 3 November 1957 Sputnik 2 became the second spacecraft launched into Earth orbit and the first to carry a living animal, a Moscow stray dog named Laika. She was doomed to die in orbit but expired sooner than planned when the fairing failed to deploy, causing the craft to overheat.

My replica also has a piece of fairing that fails to deploy properly.
