Super! What does the writing below Yuri say?

raise (your) head

(as far as i understand it, my russian is quite basic)
This is literal translation, however in Russian this phrase also has many connotations, like "be confident", "be independent/self-sufficient", and so on. This forms emotional part of the "message" filled with subtleties only accessible to those who understand the Russian culture (which can be somewhat summed up by "Yes we CAN do great things - all by ourselves").

yes the saying has been heavily plastered over all of the cosmodromes and military, industry and Academia sites since well before I born in 1988 and lived for 4 years in Moscow with my US Citizen Parents who worked for the US government in Moscow in the last days of the USSR.

This is a motto of Roskosmos flash mob on April 12 held in several cities across Russia to commemorate 55th aniversary of Gagarin flight and raise interest in space. See photos here http://www.roscosmos.ru/22151/ , for example, from Vostochny.

It sounds, from context, like the meaning is closer to "Keep your eyes to the skies!" than anything else.  In English, this is more applicable to the context, I think.  The literal translation is rather closer to "Heads up!" which has an entirely different connotation in English... ;)

1st #Soyuz rocket in #Vostochny is fueled around 4 hours ahead of routine schedule to provide time margin for unexpected technical issues.

Is it a good assumption that the grand opening of one of Putin's Great Works (TM) will be live broadcast-ed? If yes then I'm going to move this one to the live section.  ;)

There will be a live webcast on the TsENKI website, with coverage beginning at 4 a.m. Moscow time, one hour before launch.

http://www.tv-tsenki.com/

It's not so clear anymore if there will be a live webcast. The announcement on the TsENKI website has disappeared and there are no indications of a live webcast on Roskosmos TV.
