Yuri’s Night Founder
Space explorer with a passion for Earth. Trained as an astrobiologist, I love connecting people, translating between scientists, engineers and non-technical people, and reminding people that the impossible is just something that hasn't happened yet.
Specialties:Also Co-Creator of Yuri's Night, the World Space Party

First launched on April 12, 2001, Yuri’s Night celebrates two amazing accomplishments of humankind: Yuri Gagarin’s becoming the first human to orbit the earth in 1961 and the first launch of the U.S. Space Shuttle, twenty years later to the day. It is also a global celebration of humanity’s future in space and how we can use space to bring us closer together.
