Space, Ecology, Safety.
Presented are facts about cosmology and the basic elements of cosmic space, as well as options for its study and use. It is a first attempt to systemize the material on flying machines and devices for distance space studies of the environment. It reveals the link with the possible monitoring and physical and mental safety on the basis of interpretation of images from the cosmic space. An emphasis is laid on the man-operator and the related issues of selection, training and operation of complex space systems in unusual and extreme conditions and phenomena.
