This paper reviews a wide range of problems in astrophysics and cosmology that can be solved by means of astronomical observations in the far-IR to millimeter wavelength range and which include the formation and evolution of stars and planets, galaxies and the interstellar medium, the study of black holes, and the development of the cosmological model. These problems are considered in relation to the Millimetron space observatory (project Spectr-M), which is equipped with a cooled 10-meter mirror and can potentially operate both as a single-dish telescope and as part of a space-ground very long baseline interferometer.
