Celebrating 40 Years of Humans in Space

A coordinated series of worldwide parties commemorates the first human space flight by Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on this date in 1961. NPR's Alex Chadwick talks to George Whiteside, the organizer of the event, and Tony Watson, a deejay who will link the parties with the music he plays on the Internet.
