Be a part of an international event celebrating humanity’s collective accomplishments in space exploration!

Yuri’s Night commemorates the day Yuri Gagarin became the first human to go to space – back in April 1961. The Canada Aviation and Space Museum is marking the milestone with a stellar event, featuring music, free appetizers, and a cash bar. Watch a Science Slam – where professional scientists will be given five minutes and a microphone, with a goal to both educate and entertain. Think poetry slam, but for scientists! Each slammer will be judged and a winner will be crowned (organized by Science Slam Ottawa).

This is also an opportunity to explore the museum and visit the Life in Orbit exhibition. Do you ever wonder what it’s like to live in space? Find out all about the daily life aboard the marvel of technology that is the International Space Station (ISS).

Come meet the Museum’s Science Advisor, Jesse Rogerson – and join us for a night full of fun and adventures!
