Abstract : The development of manned spaceships and orbital stations has presented new possibilities for carrying out astrophysical observations under extra-atmospheric conditions. Primarily, such stations can contain larger telescopes and other astronomical equipment. Secondarily, the presence of a cosmonaut aboard the orbital station, even one who is not a professional astronomer, makes it possible to provide a broader and more complex observation program than when the observatory is completely automatically controlled by systems having a specific preset program, one not subject to change.
