UPDATE: Due to a scheduling change, Yuri’s Night will be meeting in Avedon AB, not Avedon CD as previously announced. The time and all other information remains the same.
Yuri’s Night 2010 will be officially coming to a close this Saturday, May 29th, at the National Space Society’s annual International Space Development Conference to be held at the Intercontinental Chicago O’Hare Hotel.
Loretta Whitesides will lead a panel (alongside Yuri’s Night Exec Team members including Chris Lewicki, Ryan Kobrick, Brice Russ and Grant Atkinson) that will be presenting on some of YN10’s greatest successes and some of our future plans. Once we’re finished with that, we’ll be opening up the floor, asking Yuri’s Night event organizers, partygoers, and interested observers to share their Yuri’s Night stories and offer suggestions on how we can help make YN11 even more awesome.
“Yuri’s Night: Including Fun In The Space Movement” will run from 5 – 5:45 PM Central Time, in the Avedon CD meeting room. Our presentation is part of the “Current Events/Planning for Space” track, directly following presentations by Rusty Schweickart, Robert Zubrin and George Whitesides, so it promises to be a packed house. See you there!
(I’d also be remiss if I didn’t link to this great Fast Company piece on new Virgin Galactic CEO George Whitesides, which briefly mentions his role as Yuri’s Night co-founder.)
