This is so chic & so cool. So futuristic! The earlier cS Yuri's press release, about GMT Studio 6, the vip's & super DJ combos till 2am, and space art installations from JPL in the 9,000 ft of "retro space" from LA event powerhouse The Do Lab -- its overwhelming! Post-millenial space cadets! More aptly, space futurists.

The YURI'S NIGHT SITE has so much! Ended up at the "Int'l Space U" site. Truly int'l, but based in Strasbourg, France. Has a Canadian summer campus this year. Somehow I ended on real student projects, which is old hat to those in aerospace.

( But wonderful for those unversed in such things to see graduate students developing concepts that might even go to Mars. E.g., a new "space shower" to be microgravity test flown in July -- http://lotus-shower.isunet.edu/?lang=EN ! And a bacteria project to fly June 28 http://www-micro-b.isunet.edu/The%20flight.htm ).

So there's a lot to check out! Didn't get to play the Yuri's Night video yet. Saw
more about Diamandis. BUT WE WILL BE GOING TO OUR LOCAL YURI'S NIGHT PARTY!!!

Our party is at Cassidy's in Cocoa Beach. The Orlando & Ft Lauderdale screens had trouble on our computr so we didn't see them. But we saw that some of the other big cities are having big bashes like like LA's. www.spacegeneration.org is cool too.

Just returned from the Outpost, where Houston's Yuri's Night party began at 5pm and ran through 11:30pm. A nice crowd of JSC employees, contractors and friends shared Russian toasts over vodka, interspersed by good beer, tasty munchies and live music. Frank Culbertson, Ken Cockrell and Mark Kelly were among the many guests.

We (Countdown Creations) had a booth offering RTF items, including our first batch of the popular STS-114 wristbands.

Our local party in Cocoa Beach was just great too. With some very friendly people who love space. Met a couple website hosts as well.

One named Rick just wrote me, "a pleasure meeting you last evening at Paddy's ..Please do mention my site.." The site being INSIDEKSC.COM, done by a man who indeed works ALL around ksc, from the launch control complex to the pads plus the Canaveral half as well. A good condensing of ksc links and I believe I saw a heading about the new vehicle being designed for the Moon & Mars initiative!

Another website owner, Alan, freely shared an incredible wealth of material from his portable "office" (laptop), including beautiful pictures from north of the pad where Discovery has been freshly situated for its May launch. His website is LAUNCHCOMPLEXMODELS.COM, and absolutely beautiful models they are.

At least one collectSPACE member was there, the kind host, who thankfully had posted their very first Yuri party announcement. Thanks so much again, Fred, and thanks to collectSPACE!

I believe Launch Complex Models is Ross Tierney's website. I've met them a few times at launches.

Not sure who Alan is.
