This year we are teaming up with Create Space London to celebrate human spaceflight (of Yuri Gargarin, the first human in space) at the worldwide Yuri's night. It's the only London event on the night so far, don't miss the celebration! And we are going to do it in style.
What should I expect?
Do you have a telescope? Or some other space related creation, anything from a scarf of galaxy print to a satellite that you have been keep safe in your drawers? Bring them along! Or dress up in your astronaut outfit or your favourite space character outfit! Tweet to us @citizeninventor and let's experiment with de-centralised organisation of a Yuri's night party (use hashtag #yurisnightLDN).
We will have a night sky projector (just to be prudent, in case of cloud) so we can count some stars, even if the telescope can't see any. Create Space London is going to put up some space tunes. What could that be? There's only one way to find out... Click the button below to go to the event page:
Wait, what is Yuri's night again?
Mother Nature Network has described it very well, so we are going to point you at their article. But in short, it's an evening where us space curious finds the excuse to throw a space themed party (whilst we wait for the next Galactic Fete)! It's a worldwide thing for sure, and even at a fair bit above the ground - check out last year's greetings from astronaut Samantha from International Space Station:
