>> ... the failure of Yuri's Night ...
Yuri's Night was a wildly successful event - with gatherings on every continent of the planet.
Tell any of the 28 people who attended my Yuri's Night party of a "failure," and they'll each
be able to properly educate you as to what Yuri's Night was all about.
Only a few of my attendees were hams. But everyone received handouts and watched
NASA and Russian videos and had a marvelous time - while being educated as to the
past, present, and future of space exploration.
No - We didn't have our new ham satellite to work that night. But to call Yuri's Night a
"failure" is quite wrong - as would attendees of more than 550 parties in 75 countries
across seven continents will tell you. No "failure" occurred on the 50th anniversary of
human spaceflight - only educational opportunities, camaraderie, and knowledge was
shared among thousands.
