Why is the company called Belka Productions and how did it begin?
Belka was one of the first Russian dogs in space, following in the footsteps of her predecessor Laika, and was launched from Russian mission control on August 19th 1960. She was the first dog to actually orbit and return alive. The company is named in her honour, and we hope to continue her pioneering and groundbreaking work, albeit in 'The Arts'. The company was formed by Rosy Benjamin, Oliver King and Oleg Mirochnikov in 2011.
