Tucson NSS Chapter Celebrates Yuri's Night

NSS Chapter News

The Tucson L5 Space Society Chapter of NSS hosted an exhibit table at the Yuri’s Night celebration put on by Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona, which was billed as “an evening of family-oriented activities about space, science, and astronomy” and was attended by several hundred people of all ages.  The Chapter members had great fun talking to the kids and parents.

Yuri’s Night, a celebration of the first human in space on April 12, 1961, included 233 events in 51 countries (the Tucson event was held April 9).  The National Space Society has over 60 Chapters.

NSS Vice President of Public Affairs Lynne Zielinsky recently visited the Tucson Chapter while attending an education conference in Tucson.
