Abstract:

The book tells about use of television equipment during manned space flights and about what role television will play in the organization of extraterrestrial observatories on artificial and natural celestial bodies. There are discussed problems of transmission of radiotelevision signals over cosmic distances and prospects of using for targets of space television communication of electromagnetic oscillations of the optical range of waves, and corresponding equipment is described. The book goes into detail about existing and planned use of spacecraft for relaying television programs over intercontinental distances. Principles of organization of systems of ground radio reception and radio command network, methods of registering television signals and special methods of treating received signals are described.
