A scientific conference was held at the Institute of Space Research (ICI RAS), which summed up the results of the astrophysical year and outlined plans for the exploration of deep space and the Sun.
The scientists will be helped by the Spektr-RG orbital observatory (Spektr X-Ray-Gamma), which will go into space in the spring of 2019. Scientists suggest that the astrophysical observatory will allow you to look back billions of years and answer the question of how our universe appeared.
