Yuri’s Night April 9 & 10, 2010

April 8, 2010

We’ve achieved escape velocity!

It’s spring break and so the small boy and I are going to Yuri’s Night in Mountain View CA on Friday and maybe Saturday too.

We’ve never been before but we hear it’s fabulous. The small boy is beside himself with excitement about all the cool stuff going on. Now we just need to find a place to stay tonight!

What’s Yuri’s Night? Basically NASA in Mountain View is partnering up with a bunch of Burners to produce a really cool event combining NASA stuff with Burner stuff!

Friday is for school kids and Saturday is for everyone with music and exhibits and lectures and more from noon until midnight!

Here’s the official spiel:

Taking place each year in over 120 cities world-wide, Yuri’s Night commemorates mankind’s first venture into space, by Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on April 12, 1961, and the launch of the first Space Shuttle by NASA exactly twenty years later. It is the largest annual celebration of space exploration – and of mankind’s curiosity, scientific and technical achievements.

Yuri’s Night was founded by members of the United Nations’ Space Generation Forum in September 2000. After seven months of planning, ultimately sixty Yuri’s Night events were held on April 12th, 2001. Every year, dozens of new Yuri’s Night events are added to the global space celebration.

Yuri’s Night Bay Area began in 2007 at NASA’s Ames Research Center and has grown into the world’s largest annual Yuri’s Night event – a diverse interactive celebration of science, sound and art.
