History of Yuri's Night

Yuri's Night was created in 2000 to commemorate two major space milestones. On April 12, 1961, Soviet aviator Yuri Gagarin became the first human to journey into space. On April 12, 1981, the first Space Shuttle was launched. The event was founded by Loretta Hidalgo Whitesides, George T. Whitesides and Trish Garner as a chance to celebrate these incredible achievements and all that humanity brings: music, art, science, culture, and above all each other.
