Yuri’s Night (12 April 2014)


On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin forever changed the world as we knew it. That day, the Cold War-era Space Race literally took flight as Gagarin became the first human to fly in space, piloting Vostok 1 on a single orbit around Earth.

Yuri’s Night, “The World Space Party,” is the annual celebration commemorating Gagarin’s historic flight and the maiden voyage of the American space shuttle on April 12, 1981. This event continues to bring the excitement, passion, and promise of space travel closer to people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds.

Quelab, in collaboration with Mach30, will be hosting a Yuri’s Night celebration on 12 April 2014 at 7PM. Details to come.
