One week from today is the anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s historic trip into space, the first human to venture into this realm. Each year, this anniversary is celebrated by a loose network, ‘Yuri’s Night’. This network attempts to organize parties all over the world in honor of this event; the idea being, of course, that we are one race and we should all be celebrating this achievement.
So, if there is a party in your neighborhood (which you can locate on the Yuri’s Night website), or are feeling really ambitious and want to organize one, have a beer and toast Comrade Gagarin.
There is a special event
