Happy New Year of the Earth Dog!

December 25, 2017

The coming year in the Chinese calendar is the year of the Earth Dog. Those of us who acquainted with the space exploration history would definitely agree that the best candidate to be the mascot of the 2018 year is Laika, the first dog (and the first animal!) traveled around the Earth. Laika demonstrated the example of courage and self-sacrifice required to make a breakthrough. Our group wishes you a productive new year, full of insights and great discoveries!
