Yuri’s Night will be there alongside John Glenn, Buzz Aldrin, Charles Bolden, Ben Bova, and other space legends; check out the event list below to see where you can catch up with YN!
Yuri’s Night Meetup with International Space University – If you’ve organized, helped with, or just attended a Yuri’s Night event, we’d like you to join us for a get-together this Thursday evening! YN will be meeting up with alumni and faculty from the International Space University to enjoy food and drinks, celebrate space and talk about what we can do to help Rock The Planet in 2013!
The event starts at 7 PM in the Library Room of the Laughing Man Tavern (1306 G Street NW) and is open to all affiliated with YN or ISU, regardless of whether or not you’re attending the ISDC. Read more at https://www.facebook.com/events/252214254885506/.
