Yuri Gagarin became the first human in Space in 1961 and since then more than 500 people have traveled to Space. Humans have lived continuously in the International Space Station (ISS) since November 2000. The Space Program has delivered gorgeous photos and many “Space Spinoff,” products that were developed with the help of NASA. Come and celebrate human adventures in Space with our special Yuri’s Night event which includes space-y snacks and a talk about Space Spinoffs. There’s more Space in your life than you realize!
