Radio antennae on the deck of Soviet ship Cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov, 1971. Ball-like protective covers surround two radio telescopes, which are used for observing radio signals from space. This can enable phenomena to be observed which would otherwise not be recorded on the visible light spectrum. This ship was one of two used by the Soviets to observe space.
