Paper Abstract

The World Space Observatory, Ultraviolet (WSO-UV), is a Russian-Spanish space mission born as a response to the growing up demand for UV facilities by the astronomical community. It is the only 2-meter class on-orbit telescope in the after-HST epoch fully devoted to UV observations in the spectral domain of 115-310 nm. This paper provides an information on instrumentation status in 2018 and on the forthcoming Call for the Core Program application.
