‘Pokhara Yuri’s Night Celebration and Space Party’

Pokhara Astronomical Society is organizing ‘Pokhara Yuri’s Night Celebration and Space Party’ in Celebration of Yuri's Night-2016 and Global Astronomy Month (GAM-2016)
Yuri's Night is an annual worldwide effort to engage a new generation in the passion and excitement of Space. On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin completed a 108 minutes flight around the Earth piloting "Vostok 1", a mission that marked the beginning of the human exploration of space. This pioneering effort is honored with an event that bridges continents and countries, and challenges new generation to create a positive vision for the future of humanity. Yuri's Night 2016 commemorates the past and celebrates modern space landmarks.
Exactly 20 years later (April 12th, 1981), the United States embarked on a new era in spaceflight with the inaugural launch of a new type of spaceship — the Space Shuttle. Designed to carry a larger crew and large volumes of cargo to orbit, the Space Shuttles became synonymous with human spaceflight for an entirely new generation of young people.

Space enthusiasts are requested to book their seat to participate in this global celebration. We hope to see you dream, explore and celebrate with us.
