Explore Mars teamed up with Yuri’s Night in celebrating the landing of the Mars Science Laboratory, Curiosity. Yuri’s Night provided registration services and logistical support for celebrations and events held around the world on August 5, the landing date for the MSL Curiosity rover.
As the organizers around Yuri’s Night, the World Space Party, the non-profit is uniquely suited to help organize and promote space-based celebrations of all shapes and sizes. Groups around the world planned landing parties; and did register their party and we know you did check out where the other parties were located at yurisnight.net/explore-mars-events/.
