Radiophysical techniques have recently been introduced into many scientific fields, including astronomy. The subject of Cosmic Radio Waves is the radiation from objects found far beyond the solar system. It is here that radio astronomy has achieved its most fundamental results, exerting a significant influence on such problems as the nature of primary cosmic rays and interstellar matter, the dynamics of our stellar system, and theories of cosmology. This translation by Richard B. Rodman and Carlos M. Varsavsky is based on a thorough revision by the author and includes the pertinent results of Russian investigators.
