Yuri'sNight 2009 

When we look at the Earth from space there is no border. The only thing that we can see from Earth through space is the blue and white marble in the infinite dark universe; without any boundaries and borders.

Yuri’s Night and StarPeace collaborate on promoting astronomy and space and making changes on Earth by the wonders and beauties of space.

Yuri’s Night is a celebration of humanity’s achievements in space. Each April 12, people from around the world come together to mark the anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first flight into space (in 1961) and the first launch of the US Space Shuttle (in 1981).
