On High-Energy Astrophysics

Abstract

Jan Oort is the same age as our century, the century or brilliant astronomic discoveries. Contemporaries, true, are apt to underestimate the achievements of the past and to attach particular importance to the events they witness. In fact, however, astronomy and physics began rapidly developing more than three hundred years ago and there is no ground to consider the XXth century to be distinguished in the rate of growth, striking discoveries etc. But this is another topic and here I may only restrict myself to the remark that a mere enumeration of the achievements connected with the name of Oort - galactic rotation, atomic hydrogen radioastronomy, study of the central region of the Galaxy, Crab Nebula, a number of galaxies, comets etc., - speaks for itself.
