This year’s Yuris Night will be a special one. 50 years ago, on the 12th of April the young Yuri Gagarin went into space. He was the first human who circled once around the Earth and made history! This should be celebrated of course!
Yuri Gagarin fascinated generations of people for human spaceflight. For the 3th time the Austrian Space Forum will award the “Polarstern” prize 2011 to someone, who has done extraordinary achievements for Austrian space activities and fascinates people for space. This year the prize will be again awarded during the Yuris Night. We are curious to whom the prize will be awarded!

Experts from astronomy and spaceflight will give insights into most recent developments of human spaceflight. Free entrance.
