Yuri’s Night World Space Parties celebrate humankind’s first venture into space by Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on April 12, 1961, and the launch of the first Space Shuttle on April 12, 1981. The event is a unique convergence of artists, scientists, astronauts, performers, technologists, and musicians to pay tribute to our shared global heritage in space exploration. Through simultaneous celebrations worldwide, Yuri’s Night is a collaboration of creative thinkers from all fields to ignite excitement about what is new on the horizon in space exploration and to remind us of the inspiring possibilities that humanity can achieve. In 2008, NASA's 50th Anniversary, the NASA Ames Research Center will host the largest Yuri’s Night event ever held.
We invite artists and scientists to investigate and demonstrate our culture’s radical new technology, art and vision for sustaining our future.
