Florida Tesla Enthusiasts was invited to attend the Yuri’s Night Space Coast 2018  party at the Kennedy Space Center on Friday, April 13th.

This event was sponsored by Yuri’s Night. Yuri's Night is a not-for-profit Space Enthusiasts club. Their mission is to use space to educate, inspire and bring the world a little closer together. Their organization was named after Yuri Gagarin, the first successful human space mission.

This was their club’s flagship event and is fondly known as the largest space party on and off Earth. 

The inaugural launch of the Falcon Heavy and Elon’s Roadster generated a TON of excitement around space exploration and the advancements of technology, specifically around SpaceX and Tesla. The Yuri’s Night team wanted to capture that energy so they invited us to participate by displaying a Radiant Red Roadster like the one Elon put into Mars - Earth orbit. 

The party lived up to its reputation.  Here are a few photos:
