The article presents biomedical experiments conducted by the first Polish cosmonaut, Maj. Mirosław Hermaszewski, with consideration being paid to the conditions and scientific importance of the experiments. Three experiments developed by Polish researchers, titled “Zdrowie” (“Health”), “Kardiolider” (“Cardioleader”) and “Smak” (“Taste”) are presented in detail. Names of the researchers and designers planning the biomedical experiments to be conducted on board of the SALYUT 6 station as well as the names of the designers of the physiotest, cardioleader and electrogustometer devices are also mentioned. This article is documentary in nature, and its objective is to present the achievements of the Military Institute of Aviation Medicine (MIAM) in the field of space medicine.
