On the heels of our announcement that Ron Garan has been honored with the 2011 Spirit of Yuri’s Night Award, we’re pleased to find out that Yuri’s Night itself has been named the winner of the Space Frontier Foundation’s Presentation of Space Award.
The Presentation of Space Award is given each year “for outstanding achievement in highlighting past and present events in space exploration and development. This award is for excellence in non-fiction efforts, such as documentaries and other projects to inform and enlighten the public“, with Yuri’s Night partners Orphans of Apollo and Spacevidcast among the prior recipients.
The Presentation of Space Award will be officially presented at the NewSpace Awards Gala during the Space Frontier Foundation’s NewSpace 2011 Conference on the evening of July 30. Yuri’s Night Assistant Director Brice Russ and other YN notables will be on hand to accept the award.
Yuri’s Night would like to thank the Space Frontier Foundation for their recognition of our efforts to educate the public about humanity’s history in space and inspire a new generation of space leaders, advocates, and enthusiasts.
