State of the art of holographic research performed within different space flight programs of several countries is discussed. Some of previous methods are not well compatible with unpromising conditions of weightlessness. Quite novel solutions are proposed for real time in situ holographic data acquisition and display on the board of a spacecraft. They are extremely simple, cheap and require minimal holographic hardware. Based on these solutions several novel supersmall holographic devices were devised. One of them is presented. It is portable holographic interferometer with no lenses and no alignment problems enabling monochrome or color data output. No optically skilled personnel are required for operating this device. Experimental data properly illustrating novel vast possibilities for on the board space research are presented.
