Yuri's Night

It's almost that time of year ..

2 Days left!

Yuri Gagarin was the first human to go into space on April 12th,
1961. The US Space Shuttle first launched on April 12th, 1981. Yuri's
Night is like the St Patricks Day or Cinco de Mayo for space. It is one
day when all the world can come together and celebrate the power and
beauty of space and what it means for each of us. Join us!

"Circling the Earth in my orbital spaceship I marveled at the beauty
of our planet. People of the world, let us safeguard and enhance this
beauty — not destroy it!"

Yuri Gagarin
Myself I won't be going anywhere but I'll toast the past and the future.
