Getting ready for Yuri’s Night 2009



This year, like every year, Yuri’s night takes place on April 12thand is a celebration of humanity’s achievements in space. Each April12, people from around the world come together to mark the anniversaryof Yuri Gagarin’s first flight into space (in 1961) and the firstlaunch of the US Space Shuttle (in 1981). Everyone can participate,andas local coordinator for the UK I have been trying to get my brain intogear to think of some great events to hold on the night.

The only thing which I can think of is a club night. I have a fewfriends I am hoping to call on in the next few days to throw some ideasaround and to see what we can come up with. But while I am randomlythinking i wanted to share this rather new cool logo with you.
