Yuri's Night

This post is a little late for this year, but in case you're looking for things to put on your calendar for 2009...

Yuri's Night is a fun celebration every year on April 12th, marking the anniversary of Yuri's Gagarin's flight as well as the first space shuttle flight. This year, there were about 200 parties around the world in something like 50 different countries. We had a party at NASA Goddard that included a chance to see Science on a Sphere, a really cool way to show some of the awesome science that we do at Goddard.

For more details on the Goddard party, check out this link:

Also, I was interviewed by a TV station in Baltimore on April 10th about the party, so if you'd like to check that out, take a look:
