Abstract: In this article we consider the prospects of research on comets and exoplanets using instruments onboard the WSO-UV mission. Ultraviolet spectroscopy at 115-310 nm is a powerful tool for studying comets, since this range of the electromagnetic spectrum contains most of the resonance lines of atoms, molecules and ions. The spectrographs on board the WSO-UV spacecraft will become one of the most important instruments for spectral studies of comets and exoplanets after 2025.
