Tomorrow the Chasing Atlantis team is getting their groove on for Yuri’s Night: The World Space Party!!
What’s Yuri’s Night? Yuri’s Night is 3 things all wrapped up into one bundle of space awesomeness
1) Yuri’s Night is a date: The date is April 12th which commemorates the first human in space. Yuri Gagarin completed an orbit of the Earth on April 12th 1961. We have had humans in space since that time sporadically and consistently since the construction of the International Space Station. But Yuri was the first! One brave human being, and certainly the first of many steps that led to the moon, shuttle, the space station, and hopefully the outer planets and deep space (sign me up BTW)
