What is the party about?
Yuri’s Night is a global celebration of humanity’s past, present, and future in space. Events are held around the world in commemoration of Yuri Gagarin becoming the first human in space on April 12, 1961 and the launch of the first Space Shuttle on April 12, 1981. We know you don’t need more excuses to have a good time, but 2019 is also the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and the release of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” To mark the occasion, we’re climbing in our tin cans and channeling our best Major Tom.
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
