What are you doing for Yuri's Night?

I, of course, will be in Second Life.

I will be participating in the Space Fashion Show and displaying the first item that I've made for Second Life. Come down to the show and see my creation live or visit my place in Second Life to check it out.

SpaceCoLab among others will be hosting a 24 hour event in Second Life. Yuri’s Night in Second Life will be held at the corners of the four sims named Science School, Nanotechnology, Spaceport Alpha, and Spaceport Bravo. (The links are “SLURLS” - Second Life URLs that, when clicked, help you get to those places in Second Life.)


  • Twelve live music shows!
  • Dragnwings Radio will take your requests on a nearby dance platform.
  • Space fashion show with Ameshin Yossarian
  • Space art by Jenika Connolly, Adrian Harbinger, and Stella Costello
  • Live streams from Yuri’s Night parties around the globe!

Each year on April 12th Yuri’s Night is celebrated all around the world – last year there were more than 90 events or parties held in over 30 countries worldwide - and 2007 looks set to be even bigger. (

Yuri’s Night is the global celebration of human space travel, held annually on April 12. Yuri’s Night commemorates both the historic first flight of Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on April 12, 1961, as well as the launch of the first Space Shuttle (STS-1) exactly 20 years later. This year we’re also celebrating the 50th anniversary of the launch of the first satellite, Sputnik, so we expect the highest turnout ever!
