The Doctor tells Sarah that he wants to conduct a funeral. Over a period of over an hour, he makes over 100 short hops before finding the rocket he is looking for. He materialises around the capsule containing Laika, the dog that was sent into space in Sputnik 2, just before it is due to re-enter Earth's atmosphere. He then takes the TARDIS to the planet Quiescia, which is the solar system in Earth's galaxy that is furthest from Earth, and which has no native life forms. He buries Laika there, before travelling to an entirely different galaxy.
