The emerging Space Station program will provide a significant expansion in the use of specialists in orbit with optics, for the furtherance of science, civil applications and technology. The U.S. Skylab and the U.S.S.R. Salyut activities, past and present, included a broad variety of optical payloads. Space Station concepts now underway will provide interior facilities for controls and data analysis, and, exterior capabilities for instrument installations, free-flyer retrieval and servicing.
