The 5.6t craft carried dogs Veterok and Ugolyek at high altitude to study radiation effects prior to humans being flown at that height. By day 20, the quality of the cabin air was causing concern and the craft was brought down on 16 Mar, after a flight of almost 22 days. The dogs were in poor health and their muscular systems took ten days to recover.
