Tonight is Yuri’s Night! And a very special one – the 50th anniversary of Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin’s first human journey into outer space.
Since we could not find one nearby in Greece, we (Sam, Louis and I) are having our very own Yuri’s Night in Thessaloniki.
Tune in to YouTube and watch the premier for free at midnight GMT tonight (12th April 2011). Filmed entirely from orbit on board the International Space Station, matching the ground path of the ISS with that of Vostok 1 to record a new HD view of what Gagarin might have seen, this is an amazingly exciting giant leap in cinematic history.
