Yuri’s Night occurs annually on April 12, marking the anniversaries of Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first spaceflight in 1961 and the first space shuttle mission 20 years later. Each year, a series of space-themed parties, dinners and educational events are held around the world to mark these historic achievements.
