The proposal of Stellar Populations has performed a basic function in astronomy within the previous few many years. It used to be brought by means of Walter Baade after he was once in a position to get to the bottom of the Andromeda Nebula and its partners into stars while he used red-sensitive plates and realised that there have been essentially diverse Herzsprung-Russell diagrams in our and those within reach galaxies (common stars within the sunlight local as opposed to globular clusters). This end result used to be released in papers in 1944 in quantity a hundred of the Astrophysical magazine. next learn gave the concept that a miles less assailable foundation and on the well-known Vatican Symposium of 1957 ended in a normal scheme of the concept that and a operating speculation for idea's at the formation and evolution of the Galaxy. This has been a guideline of reports of our and different galaxies for many years. a few years in the past it appeared to us acceptable to commemorate Baade's seminal paintings in 1994, while it will have its 50-th anniversary, and to study its current prestige and likewise its position in contempory realizing. whereas we have been in Leiden for an administrative committee, we mentioned the problem back and over beers on October 29, 1991 we determined the take the initiative for an IAU Symposium at the topic in the course of the 1994 IAU basic meeting in Den Haag, the Netherlands.

It was the great flowering of nuclear physics in the 1930s that made it possible to find specific solution of the sort envisioned by Atkinson. The discovery of a wide variety of nuclear reactions, together with information about the stability of various isotopes, opened up interesting questions that no one had even thought to frame before. For example, as Ernest Rutherford wrote in 1937, "When our knowledge of transformations is more advanced, we may be able to understand the reason of the relative abundance of different elements in the earth and why, on average, even-numbered elements are far more abundant than odd- numbered elements.

Who was Van Tulden (given that we must be in his native country)? OSTERBROCK: It is certainly true that Baade did not talk or write of "his" or "Baade's window"; he described it as the field with relatively low extinction at 1= 328°,b = _4°.

Reactions between Hand He4 lead nowhere, there being no stable nucleus of mass 5. Reactions of H with Li, Be, and B, as well as with deuterons, are all very fast at the central temperature of the sun, but just this speed of reaction rules them out: The partner of H is very quickly used up in the process. In fact, and just because of this reason, all the elements mentioned, from deuterium to boron, are extremely rare on earth and in the stars, and can therefore not be important sources of energy.
