Space Symposium

Save the Date for Space Foundation Yuri's Night 2017

Written by: developer

The public is invited to join the Space Foundation’s Yuri’s Night celebration on Sunday, April 2, launching Space Symposium week in Colorado Springs.

Yuri’s Night parties and events are held around the world every April in commemoration of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first manned spaceflight in 1961, and the inaugural launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle in 1981. The Space Foundation’s annual Yuri’s Night has expanded to celebrate global space achievements and to give the public the opportunity to meet and interact with key participants in the coming week’s Space Symposium.

In addition to being a fun way to start the week, proceeds from the event will benefit the Space Foundation’s STEM education programs.

Space Foundation Yuri’s Night is a 21-years and older event, held at the Discovery Center, 4425 Arrowswest Drive in Colorado Springs, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. on April 2. Watch for more details in future issues of Space Watch.
