Official video for Moan, directed by Niels Gråbøl and Ulrik Crone. In memory of Laika (✝1957), the first living creature to enter orbit. Original version of Moan appears on the Trentemøller album "The Last Resort" (2006).
*Laika’s legend and legacy ought to give us pause. Space exploration needn’t be an “assault on the universe,” a militaristic enterprise undertaken without regard for other creatures’ suffering. Dogs were likely the first animals that we domesticated, and the first to migrate with us across the globe. They have never left us, despite our failings and abuses. As we humanize space, let us remember that dogs humanize us.
