Xeni - Yuri

Yuri's Night space fete, Xeni hosting Houston webcast

On April 12th 1961, 45 years ago today, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to travel into space. Two decades later, astronauts John Young and Robert Crippen flew America's first Space Shuttle flight into orbit. And tonight, commemorations of human space travel will take place all over the world: Yuri's Night. 86 parties in 32 countries! I'll be hosting a live webcast from the Houston edition, and it should be a lot of fun.
