Today, 18th June 2011, Roskosmos launched a space-based radio observatory named "Spectrum-R" (RadioAstron).
Combining RadioAstron with Earth-based radio observatories give to scientists a huge interferometer with more than 300 000 km base.

Who knows, may be in next years Einstein@Home will be start to crunch a RadioAstron data? :)
