In my talk I will concentrate on space-based instruments ranging from the small (<1m diameter) to the large (multi-meter) and will take you on an international journey to the USA and back, covering work in research institutes and with ESA & NASA. I will conclude with a review of future prospects for you and me in astrophysics beyond the solar system.”
