Abstract. The World Space Observatory Ultraviolet (WSO-UV) is an international space mission devoted to UV spectroscopy and imaging. The observatory includes a 1.7m aperture telescope capable of high-resolution and long-slit low-resolution spectroscopy, and deep UV and optical imaging. The observatory is designed for observations in the UV domain where many astrophysical processes can be studied efficiently with unprecedented capability.
