    Koronas-Foton (Russian: Коронас-Фотон), also known as CORONAS-Photon (Complex Orbital Observations Near-Earth of Activity of the Sun-Photon), was a Russian Solar research satellite.
  • Skylab 2
    Skylab 2 (also SL-2 and SLM-1) was the first manned mission to Skylab, the first U.
  • Philae (spacecraft)
    Philae (/ˈfaɪliː/ or /ˈfiːleɪ/) is a robotic European Space Agency lander that accompanied the Rosetta spacecraft until it separated to land on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, ten years and eight months after departing Earth.
  • Small Astronomy Satellite 3
    The Small Astronomy Satellite 3 (SAS 3, also known as SAS-C before launch) was a NASA X-ray astronomy space telescope.
  • Kosmos 461
    Kosmos 461 (Russian: Космос 461 meaning Cosmos 461), also known as DS-U2-MT No.
  • Kvant-1

  • Skylab
    Skylab was the United States' first space station, orbiting Earth from 1973 to 1979, when it fell back to Earth amid huge worldwide media attention.
  • High Energy Astronomy Observatory 1
    HEAO-1 surveyed the sky in the X-ray portion of the electromagnetic spectrum (0.2 keV - 10 MeV), providing nearly constant monitoring of X-ray sources near the ecliptic poles and more detailed studies of a number of objects by observations lasting 3-6 hours.
  • Cygnus X-3
    Cygnus X-3 is one of the stronger binary X-ray sources in the sky.
  • Compton Gamma Ray Observatory
    The Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) was a space observatory detecting light from 20 keV to 30 GeV in Earth orbit from 1991 to 2000.
  • High Energy Astronomy Observatory 3
    The last of NASA's three High Energy Astronomy Observatories, HEAO 3 was launched 20 September 1979 on an Atlas-Centaur launch vehicle, into a nearly circular, 43.
  • Astronomical Netherlands Satellite
    The Astronomical Netherlands Satellite (ANS; also known as Astronomische Nederlandse Satelliet) was a space-based X-ray and ultraviolet telescope.
  • Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Mission
    The Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Mission consists of a robotic spacecraft called Swift, which was launched into orbit on November 20, 2004, at 17:16:00 UTC on a Delta II 7320-10C expendable launch vehicle.
  • Salyut 4
    Salyut 4 (DOS 4) (Russian: Салют-4; English translation: Salute 4) was a Salyut space station launched on December 26, 1974 into an orbit with an apogee of 355 km, a perigee of 343 km and an orbital inclination of 51.
  • Phobos 1
    Phobos 1 was an unmanned Russian space probe of the Phobos Program launched from the Baikonour launch facility on 7 July 1988.
  • Astrosat
    Astrosat is India's first dedicated multi-wavelength space observatory.

    The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) was a space telescope for ultraviolet astronomy, launched on June 7, 1992.
  • Gamma (satellite)
    Gamma was a Soviet gamma ray telescope.
  • History of X-ray astronomy
    The history of X-ray astronomy begins in the 1920s, with interest in short wave communications for the U.
  • Astrophysical X-ray source
    Astrophysical X-ray sources are astronomical objects with physical properties which result in the emission of X-rays.
  • G 117-B15A
    G117-B15A is a small, well-observed variable white dwarf star of the DAV, or ZZ Ceti, type in the constellation of Leo Minor.
