What's Yuri's Night?
On April 12, 2008, building on last year's incredible success and in conjunction with NASA's 50th anniversary, Yuri's Night Bay Area will grow to 8,000 people in a 12-hour festival and symposium including both daytime and nighttime events lasting from 2pm to 2am. It will be a unique event that features participatory science, space-themed art and technology exhibits, live music and dance, and discussion about science, technology, space, and the future of our species. The theme for this year's event, "Radical Technology for a Sustainable Future," will encourage participants to reflect on how humans survive in the ultimate resource-starved environment - outer space and how space technology and research can help us to better prepare for a sustainable future on Earth.

Participants will join in discussions hosted by local science and technology clubs, learn new skills in hands-on workshops, and engage with the work done at NASA Ames through tours of the facility.

The hangar and adjoining tarmac will be filled with space and sustainability-inspired art exhibits and interactive technology and science demonstrations, including innovations in robotics, engineering, chemistry, and astronomy, all presented by NASA and Bay Area scientists and engineers. All this will occur in a festival atmosphere featuring world-class musical performances, acrobatics, and dance.

Thanks for the heads-up! I missed this event last year, but I heard about it afterwards from some of my collaborators at Ames - sounds like it was an absolute blast! I'm sure tickets will fly out the door this year, giving the great media coverage they got last year, and combined with NASA's 50th anniversary party.
