Colorverse Space Laika from Season 1 Spaceward is a medium cool-tone chocolate brown fountain pen ink with medium shading and low brown sheen. It dries in 50 seconds in a medium nib on Rhodia and has a dry flow. Colorverse ink is made in Korea.

Laika was a Soviet space dog who became one of the first animals in space, and the first animal to orbit the Earth. Laika, a stray from the streets of Moscow, was selected to be the occupant of the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik 2 that was launched into low orbit on 3 November 1957. 

Little was known about the impact of spaceflight on living creatures at the time of Laika's mission, and the technology to de-orbit had not yet been developed, so Laika's survival was never expected nor planned for. Some scientists believed humans would be unable to survive the launch or the conditions of outer space, so engineers viewed flights by animals as a necessary precursor to human missions. The experiment aimed to prove that a living passenger could survive being launched into orbit, paving the way for human spaceflight and providing scientists with some of the first data on how living organisms react to spaceflight environments.

On 11 April 2008, Russian officials unveiled a monument to Laika. A small monument in her honour was built near the military research facility in Moscow that prepared Laika's flight to space. It portrayed a dog standing on top of a rocket.
