Imaginations soar at Yuri's Day
Yuri's Education Day brought droves of Bay Area children to Moffett Field on April 8 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin's first foray into space. NASA's Ames Research Center hosted hands-on activities, including interactive exhibits, workshops and presentations by leading scientists, engineers and technology experts. About 6,000 students attended, touring aircraft, building and launching model rockets and controlling a replica Mars rover.
