Yuri’s Night 2011 is nearly upon us, and there are tons of ways that students and friends of SEDS can get involved!
If you haven’t already, you should work on setting up a local Yuri’s Night party. It could be an amazing party or learning event for hundreds of people or just a meetup between friends to celebrate humanity’s successes in space. In either case, please post your party at yurisnight.net so that others might be able to come join in the fun.
Once that’s done, you need to go get involved in the contests set up by the Yuri’s Night planning team. There is a chance for you to enter to win a free trip to visit space sites in Russia as well as chances to use your creativity to create ads to inspire the public and win prizes for your work. All of the current prizes are listed at yurisnight.net/contests/ and most end in a week, so get busy!
We hope everyone around the world has a great Yuri’s Night this April 12 and thank you for helping our friends at Yuri’s Night make a difference.
