    Background: With the interest of the World centered on a Russian made 'satellite' now in orbit around the Sun, it is not surprising that Prague citizens are queuing to see an exhibition of Russian rockets and Sputniks at the Hyborna Exhibition Hall.

    Two highlights of the exhibition - a dog, similar to one projected into space in Sputnik II, Nov 3 '57, and an exhibition the Czechs say is a model of the Russian 'Lunik' now orbiting the Sun.

    The smallest Sputnik I is shown high on the ceiling against a background of the Universe.
