Bay Area “Yuri’s Night” call for artists, scientists

Our pal, and MAKE contributor, Xeni Jardin posted the following on Boing Boing:

Each year, a string of Yuri’s Night World Space Parties around the globe celebrate humankind’s first foray into space. That first human was Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, on April 12, 1961. The events are a lot of fun (I hosted one in Texas, had a blast!), and the 2008 Bay Area edition is calling for artists and scientists — deadline is February 8.

See the Boing Boing post for more info.
