Abstract : It has long been the dream of scientists to place a laboratory outside the planet for the purpose of observing the phenomena of the Universe unhampered by the interference of the Earth's atmosphere. In the group flight of the 'Soyuz' ('Union') spacecraft an important link has been forged in the realization of this dream. The article tells of research with an, as-yet-unpiloted, observatory which has carried out the first all-around studies of vacuum ultraviolet and soft X-ray radiation in space. (Author)
