Celebrating Yuri’s Night From Orbit
Yuri's Night

Thomas Pesquet: 56 years ago Gagarin was the first to go to space. since then, we’ve never stopped to explore! From Vostok to Progress to Soyuz to the International Space Station. 56 years of human spaceflight! Happy Yuri’s Night everyone!

Héritier du Vostok, le Soyouz veille sur vos nuits, tout juste 56 ans après le vol de Youri Gagarine… Nous passons incognito au-dessus de l’Europe. La nuit est si claire qu’on voit les nuages !
