A statue will soon stand in Paris honoring the first, and perhaps only, cat to fly into space. More than $57,000 was raised on Kickstarter to fund the bronze monument honoring Félicette, the black-and-white stray that France launched on a 15-minute suborbital spaceflight in October 1963. The crowdfunded memorial is intended to raise awareness of the oft-forgotten feline.
