A keen balloonist with a specialty in World War 1 era zeppelins, Youri was always the trailblazer in his field. Often spending hours in his laboratory (which was really his garage, but calling it this infuriated him) creating new "flying machines".
A specialist in ballooning, balloonery and balloon forensics, Youri graduated with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Aviation from Princeton University.

The various ideas he had eventually were culminated in the creation of his blog, floating in the toilet. Thanks for the support and as Youri said, "I'll see you when I get back down from space."
