A New Hope
Don't miss our 15th annual Yuri's Night Los Angeles (and our 3rd time under the SPACE SHUTTLE ENDEAVOUR!!!) Whether you live and breathe space at home or at work or just like to dabble, this is the place to be to meet others like yourself and to revel in space, art and music. COSTUMES ENCOURAGED :)
This year's theme is "A New Hope" so you will see a number of Star Wars characters roaming around as well...
Party Like You Are On Mars!
Join us for an evening of dancing, drinks, glow sticks, costumes, and all things space. You might even bump into an astronaut, a rocket scientist or Mars rover mission controller at the party... Space-themed, eco-"Mixology" Cocktails, beer and wine and light snacks will be available for sale from Akasha Restaurant. DJ Eva and DJ Wade will be bringing you sick space beats till 11:00- UNDER A SPACE SHUTTLE!
Yuri's Night Supporter Tickets: The party runs from 8:00 p.m.- 11:00 so 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 (see full list below), Artists and Space Heroes from L.A. and beyond! Forest Sterns, Head of the Artist in Residence Program at Planet Labs, and the Rebel Legion and 501st will all be there. CLICK THE ORANGE REGISTER BUTTON (above right) TO GET YOUR TICKETS!
VIP Tickets: doors open at 7:00 p.m. to give you an extra hour under the Space Shuttle to mingle and connect with Astronauts, Rocket Scientists and local personalities or get your photo in the Photo Booth (with the Shuttle photo bombing) before the line gets really long. The VIP event will include a special talk and Q&A with former NASA Astronaut Mae Jemison that will inspire you to get your A$%! to Mars, Alpha Centauri and beyond! Don't miss it, Mae is amazing! You also get the first drink on us, your own VIP area, robots dispensing space fortunes, a free space caricature and more! CLICK THE ORANGE REGISTER BUTTON (above right) TO GET YOUR TICKETS!
Dr. Mae Jemison is a physician, engineer, educator and entrepreneur, was the first woman of color in the world to go into space aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour and was a NASA astronaut for six years. She runs the 100 Year Starship initiative, which is preparing us for "An Inclusive, Audacious, Journey [That] Transforms Life Here on Earth & Beyond."
Don't miss a minute of the fun. Get your VIP tickets and start your night of dancing in style!
Also joining us will be Tim Russ (Commander Tuvok “Star Trek: Voyager”), Patricia Tallman (Lyta Alexander from “Babylon 5”), Dean
Haglund (one of the Lone Gunman from “The X-Files”), Brian Brophy
(Commander Maddox, "Star Trek: Next Generation") and JPL's Mohawk Guy,
Bobak Ferdowsi. We will also be premiering the latest version of Miguel
Angel Argon Calvo's dive through 200,000 galaxies as we 'fly' out from
Earth to the farthest reaches of the Universe exploring one small patch
of sky from the COSMOS astronomical survey.
(I saw it at LACMA and was stunned by it) as well as the Dalek robot
from Dr. Who and the R2-D2 unit from 'Artoo in Love'. We have something for everyone!
JPL personnel will be on hand to discuss the accomplishments of the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission which flew aboard the shuttle Endeavour and acquired the most complete topographical map of the Earth (now used for a wide variety of applications and present in some form in every mobile device). Sample hardware (cabling, spacecraft model, etc.) will be present. JPL personnel will also be present to discuss the progress of the Mars Rover Curiosity. A scale model, spacecraft wheel, and stickers to give away, as well as some other items, will be present.
ISS Above will be there showing you how to build your own wearable ISS flyover reminder. Sci-Fest L.A. will be promoting their May festival and offering pictures with their celebs (who are also featured in this year's shows). Vortex Media is bringing their interactive floor projection and projecting on the Shuttle itself! The Rebel Legion and 501st will be on hand to give that authentic Star Wars galaxy feel to our "New Hope" Celebration, and the Wizards of Mars are bringing their 6 ft LED lit, acrylic disk of the Voyager Golden Record that is the centerpiece of their Black Rock City Observatory Entrance and a number of other cool folks are joining every day! It will be EPIC!
Bring business cards to share with all the cool people you meet to keep in touch and to put in to win a pair of Dr Who blue tooth speakers!
We will also have Yuri's Night T-Shirts, Lapel Pins, Buttons, and Stickers on sale.
This year we will again host the Yuri's Night Ambassadors in their dashing blue sashes! Please go up to them throughout the night and ask your favorite space questions!

Yuri's Night has been using space to bring the world together since 2001. It was all born here in L.A. in a lab at Caltech! Loretta and George Whitesides are the creators of Yuri's Night and are honored to be at the L.A. event this year which will have over 100 events worldwide including a greeting from the Astronauts aboard the International Space Station! The event honors the coincidental anniversaries of the 1st human to go into space, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on 12 April 1961 and the 1st Space Shuttle launch on 12 April 1981. It invites people around the world to come together to celebrate our love of space and our dreams for humanity's future in space.
Note: While Yuri's Night supporters of all ages are welcome, it will be a very nightclub-like party with alcohol, adult costumes and music, especially after 8:00 p.m. Please plan accordingly. Thank You.
Transfers and Refunds: You can transfer your additional tickets to a different guest if needed (please limit this as it will really slow the check in process for other party goers!). All Yuri's Night ticket sales, like most other concerts and events, are final. Thank you for your support! This event is for all human space exploration and Yuri's Night supporters and the members/employees of our sponsors.
