In that times little was known about influence of spaceflight on living creature, some specialists supposed impossible for man to orbit. Also there was no know technology of de-orbiting the spaceship, so Laika was condemned to death. 
Laika died after 4 hours after launch because of overheating. 
Just in memory of all animals used in experiments to broaden human knowledge.
