Opal Lei’s new Saturn Stage sets the mood for Emileigh Starbrook’s DJ dance selections at the 2015 Yuri’s Night, co-sponsored by NSS and the International Spaceflight Museum.
For several years NSS in Second Life has partnered with the International Spaceflight Museum, a nonprofit — and now tax-exempt! — Second Life activity, to host a Yuri’s Night Dance on April 12, date of the first human launched into space, Yuri Gagarin, from the old Soviet Union (Russia) in 1961. This year SL builder Opal Lei presented ISM with a new venue, high in the sky: Saturn and its moons! Here we see the dance floor on a sliced-in-half Saturn, with tables and chairs sitting on Saturn’s Rings. Emileigh Starbrook provided music and DJ services.

Snow melts into mud; the ice rink melts into a pool: Spring arrives at the EML-1 BALLroom Indoor Park.

Snow melts into mud; the ice rink melts into a pool: Spring arrives at the EML-1 BALLroom Indoor Park.

The winter clouds lighten, temperatures rise, the winter snow melts into slippery mud, and the dance-floor ice rink melts, returning moisture to the air and ground of the artificially-maintained park at the Earth-Moon L1 Space BALLroom in Second Life. Planetologist and Groundskeeper P’rng Flagstaff watches over the process. Galoshes recommended. We regularly meet at the table under the whiteboard directly across the room.
