Yuri’s Night Bulgaria 2024

59 59 people viewed this event.

On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first human to fly into space, becoming the most famous person on Earth. For years, this date has been celebrated as World Aviation and Cosmonautics Day, and the global initiative Yuri’s Night has been created to popularize topics related to humanity’s space past, present, and future.

Traditionally, we at Ratio participate in the global celebration, and this time we have prepared a series of interesting topics through which we will fly together.

The Yuri’s Night space crew consists of Victoria Todorova (Systems Engineer), Ralitsa Velikova (Software Engineer), Elka Terzieva (Engineer), and Simon Jenner (Axiom Space). With them, we will orbit around several topics, while in the meantime, we will enjoy a special thematic selection of music and lights suitable for a space party.

Space exploration would be impossible without space rockets, and at Yuri’s Night, we will learn more about how they work. We will discuss what Q-MAX means and why everyone celebrates when the rocket passes it, even though it is still flying and has not reached space yet. We will raise the topic of radiation sources in space and understand the various effects that radiation can have on electronics in space. We will also examine types of random-access memory that are radiation-resistant. Of course, when talking about space, we cannot overlook astronauts, and we will learn more about the preparation of an astronaut before flying into space.

We will ask a series of space questions, including:

Can we launch space rockets from Bulgaria? What are geostationary satellites (GSS) and what are the nature of their missions? What are the ways to deal with non-destructive errors caused by radiation? We expect you on April 12 with a large dose of space science to celebrate together the historic journey of Yuri Gagarin and World Aviation and Cosmonautics Day.
