Abstract

The several disciplines which are incorporated under the heading ‘space research’ can be placed into the two broad categories of geophysics and astronomy. No hard and fast demarcation can be drawn and a considerable region of overlap exists, including, for example, the moon and planets. There is a basic difference between the two subjects in the experimental sense since most geophysical experiments use the spacecraft as a probe to make measurements pertinent to its immediate environment whereas astronomical experiments use the spacecraft as an observational platform to make measurements of the radiation emitted by very remote objects. In the latter case it is essential to know the exact attitude of the space vehicle and, for any advanced measurements, it is also essential to control the attitude. It is mainly because of this requirement for a stabilized platform that advances in astrophysics have tended to be slower than for geophysics in the space research field.
