Save the Date for Space Foundation Yuri's Night

Written by: developer

Plan now to celebrate Yuri’s Night at the Space Foundation Discovery Center in Colorado Springs on April 12.

Yuri’s Night parties and events are held around the world every April in commemoration of April 12, 1961, the day of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first manned spaceflight, and April 12, 1981, the inaugural launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle.

Our public celebration of Space Foundation Yuri’s Night at the Discovery Center will be held 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. on April 12, just before the launch of our 31st Space Symposium on April 13. Watch for more details in future issues of Space Watch.
