We welcomed Brice Russ to the program for a one hour Yuri’s Night 2013 wrap up discussion. For more information, visit their main website, http://yurisnight.net. During our hour long discussion with Brice, we talked about Yuri’s Night, its history, goals, and we compared the 2013 year which just ended to earlier years. For 2013, we learned that there were over 350 parties worldwide in 57 countries. This was about 100 more than last year. We learned that there was a Yuri’s Night event from the ISS and also Curiosity on Mars! Some of the parties drew several thousand people, we talked about the big party in Los Angeles at the California Science Center under Space Shuttle Endeavour. Other specifically mentioned parties included the one at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, the party in Reno, and the Washington, DC “Space Burlesque Show” which was part of Yuri’s Night. Listeners sent in many email questions and suggestions. They wanted to know about parties for young school age kids, fraternity or sorority parties on college campuses, even parties at military basis or on naval ships at sea. Brice also took us through the timeline for the 2014 Yuri’s Night parties, website registration, volunteering to help out, and more. During our discussion, Brice suggested several related Yuri’s Night websites and their new newsletter which you can sign up for if interested. Most of these additional sites can be accessed through their main website above but if you want to visit one of the other sites & don’t see the link for it, just use the direct URL Brice provided on air. One listener asked Brice what other space event in addition to Yuri’s Night he would want to celebrate. Both Brice and I said the Apollo 11 flight and our Moon program. Brice used the opportunity to talk about how Yuri’s Night supports other space events and programs. When asked if the Yuri’s Night organization supported any specific space policy, the answer was no other than human spaceflight. Toward the end of our segment, I asked Brice what seemed to work regarding space education outreach. You don’t want to miss his response to this question. After our hour with Brice ended, I came back for a very short period to go over the future Space Show schedule and to make a few announcements including our Amazon announcement.
