Celebrate Yuri's Night This Thursday! - Thursday marks the 51st anniversary of the first manned flight into space, when Yuri Gagarin ? aboard his Vostok 1 capsule ? journeyed where no human had gone before. As we have done for the last 11 years, members of Yuri's Night are organizing parties in all corners of our home planet to commemorate the occasion. Parties vary in size from a few dozen to a few hundred people, all started by individuals who view human space exploration as something to honor, celebrate, and rejoice.
