Abstract : Experiments in space biology are part of the extensive program carried out on board the orbiting scientific laboratory 'Salyut-4'. Living organisms taken on the flight are alive and developing. The cosmonauts observe them and take note of their growth characteristics under the required conditions which they maintain. Later, the biological objects will return to earth with the crew for further laboratory study. This is the general course of all biological experiments carried out in space.
