Paper Abstract

In June 2018, 55 years have passed since the first scientific experiment in the history of world science was carried out by cosmonauts on manned "satellite-spacecraft ". This was the first scientific experiment on remote sensing of the Earth from space. Its results confirmed the existence of stratospheric aerosol layers formed due to powerful eruptions of volcanoes. In particular, it was justified that the discovered layers formed during the eruption of the Agung volcano on the Bali island in 1963. The eruptions of Agung volcano in 2017-2018 reminded of the pioneering achievements of Soviet cosmonauts and scientists in the exploration of outer space. Professor Georgy Vladimirovich Rosenberg theoretically substantiated this experiment and ensured the successful processing and objective analysis of space data. The publication is devoted to the 65th anniversary of the M.V.Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics of Russian Academy of Sciences, which provided the ballistic calculations of spacecraft "Vostok-5" and "Vostok-6" and the successful flight of Soviet cosmonauts Valery Fedorovich Bykovsky and Valentina Vladimirovna Nikolayeva- Tereshkova, the first female cosmonaut.
