Introductory Lecture

  • J. H. Oort
Part of the International Astronomical Union / Union Astronomique Internationale book series (IAUS, volume 97)


On the subject of radiogalaxies my most vivid reminiscence is of an afternoon in Santa Barbara Street with a marvellous meeting with Baade and Minkowski where they told me that they had discovered that Cygnus A had been identified with a faint galaxy.
