Unexpected, celestial X-rays were discovered by chance. Since then a great number of missions and experiments were performed for the study of the high-energy sky. The contribution gives a review of the most important results obtained with space missions and balloon experiments in the 10--600 keV band, the so-called hard X-/soft gamma-ray band, a crucial window for the study of the most energetic and violent phenomena in the Universe.
