You and 800 of your closest space friends are invited to a fabulous party under the Space Shuttle Endeavour with costumes, interesting scientists and engineer hosts who are available to talk to you about anything under the sun, a photo booth, and a cosmic link to all the other Yuri’s Night events around the planet that will be going on that same weekend.
Yuri’s Night is committed to using space to bring the world together, because they want to give more people access to the magic and wonder of space and because being a part of a community is FUN!
Join for an evening of dancing, drinks, glow sticks, costumes, and all things space. You might bump into an astronaut, rocket scientist or Mars rover mission controller at the party… Space-themed, eco-“Mixology” Cocktails, beer and wine will be available for sale from Akasha Restaurant.
- Yuri’s Night Supporter Tickets $25: doors open at 9:00 p.m. and the Space Shuttle turns into a pumpkin at Midnight to be sure to get there early to get in as much dancing and mingling under the Shuttle as possible! Come meet Yuri’s Night Ambassador Scientists, Artists and Space Heroes from all around L.A.
- VIP Tickets $60: doors open at 8:00 p.m. to give you an extra hour under the Space Shuttle to mingle and connect with Astronauts, Rocket Scientists and local personalities. The VIP event will include a live taping of the Planetary Radio show and a special talk and Q&A with former NASA Astronaut Ron Garan.
- Ron Garan was on ISS during the 50th anniversary of Yuri’s flight and hosted his own Yuri’s Night celebration in space! Ron came back from space committed to using the Orbital Perspective to make a difference here on Earth. His non-profit, Fragile Oasis was set up to do just that. Come hear about Ron’s amazing adventures and what he is doing to bring space down to Earth. Proceeds from the VIP ticket sales will go to support his work at Fragile Oasis, so thank you for your support!!!
