Annually on 12 April, the space community commemorates the day the first human (Yuri Gagarin) launched into outer space with a remarkable event called Yuri’s Night. This year, Kibera Aeronautics & Space Academy (KASA), in partnership with Space Generation Advisory Council, Amateur Astronomy Society of Kenya (AASK), Leo Sky Africa and Mars Society Kenya, celebrated the event on 16 April at Tunapanda Institute, Kibera – Nairobi.
