It’s Yuris Night!
In this age explorations are only done if there is a profit margin involved or there is a reality show being filmed let us take the opportunity to celebrate when adventure was fresh, and done for the sake of doing it!
Today is the anniversary of the historic broaching of our terrestrial bonds by Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gargarin in 1961, and there are parties all around the world that are celebrating that! In the United States alone there are multiple celebrations! Check them out at http://yurisnight.net/partylist/
I spent my celebrations this weekend re-enacting Stargate SG-1 with my fellow geeks. But you can either attend family friendly events or even a cocktail party at the Astronauts Hall of Fame in Titusville Florida tonight! No matter what you do tonight go outside and look up. Look up and tell yourself, “We’ve been there. We are there to stay.”
