Please can you plan a Holiday Doodle for Yuri's Night? Each year the World Space Party celebrates the first human being to orbit the earth, Yuri Gagarin. He entered history on 1962 April 12.

Maybe DDG could become an affiliate, cross-promoting Yuri's Night and DDG?

Good reference links for a Yuri's Night doodle:
Yuri's Night.net main website (all-volunteer, non-profit organization)

(film) First Orbit: real-time recreation by ISS crew of what Gagarin would have seen, intercut with chatter from the original communications between Baikonur control and Gagarin aloft. Top Docs has a good blurb; also available directly on YouTube

(video - 2013 YN) Chris Hadfield wishes the world a Happy Yuri's Night

(video - 2013) Space Oddity by Chris Hadfield, filmed from ISS

Lots in Russian too, including
(video) Pervyi chelovek v kosmose (First human in the cosmos)

Key Russian sources

Other worthy possible Holiday Doodles:
Valentina's Day (counterpart to Yuri's Night) - June 16
Marking the launch of the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova (1963 June 16)

World Space Week - October 4 - 10 annually: United Nations declared celebration

Thanks so much for running the Yuri's Night holiday doodle. I posted it to Yuri's Night Live, which should get you some PR. Unfortunately, I only had the thumbnail from the Doodle File, so the quality is . . . . waaay low. Is there any way to get a high-quality copy of the YN doodle to replace the thumbnail post?

Yes of course :)

Here are some logo in better quality :
