Yesterday was Yuri day. Not familiar with it? Understandable. See, I’m a space geek, and so Yuri is a common name in this kangaroo’s household. But what a lot of people don’t know is the story of how Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin (a Soviet pilot and cosmonaut) went to space before anyone else (April 12, 1961). I found a great video on it, but it’s over an hour long. So, send this link home, sit back and give it a watch later on. Trust me, it’s good. Clickety Click.
