Paper Abstract

Space astronomy, the observation of the heavens through telescopes which are above the atmosphere, is now well under way. It began with balloon and rocket flights, and progressed to satellites capable of long steady observation. The most successful of these has been 0A0-2, which is now in its third year of operation, gathering data continuously and adding richly to scientific knowledge of the universe (Ref. 1). 0A0-3 failed to reach orbit in Nov. 1970 due to launch vehicle malfunction, but 0A0-4 is scheduled for launch in late 1971.
