Astronomy and space scienceEdit

  • June 13 – Pioneer 10 passes the orbit of Neptune, becoming the first man-made object who travel beyond the major planets of the solar system.
  • September 26 – The Soyuz T-10-1 mission ends in a pad abort at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, when a pad fire occurs at the base of the Soyuz U rocket during the launch countdown. The escape tower system, attached to the top of the capsule containing the crew and Soyuz spacecraft, fires immediately pulling the crew safe from the vehicle, a few seconds before the rocket explodes, destroying the launch complex.
