Yuri’s Night is an international celebration taking place in over 120 cities worldwide and is held on April 12 every year to commemorate two separate space exploration milestones. The first milestone was the launch of the first human into space, Yuri Gagarin on April 12, 1961. The second milestone was the launch of the first Space Shuttle, STS-1, on April 12, 1981.
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.
