ART X and the Michigan Science Center host Detroit's official entry into this worldwide event - also known as "Yuri's Night"- in commemoration of the first spaceflight by Yuri Gagarin on April 12th, 1961 - but celebrating all human activity in space. Join tens of thousands of people around the world this April to dream about where we're going, explore where we are, and celebrate where we've been at the World Space Party!


Here are some of the highlights of this special night! 
ROCKET LAUNCH
