Physics of our days

The origin of cosmic rays (past, present, future)

Lebedev Physical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Leninsky prosp. 53, Moscow, 119991, Russian Federation

The first part of the article is a lecture prepared for the 15th International Conference on Cosmic Rays (Plovdiv, Bulgaria, August 1977). In addition to historical aspects a number of questions are discussed in the lecture concerning the present state of the problem of the origin of cosmic rays. Among them are the following: proof of the existence of a cosmic ray halo and a radio halo of our Galaxy and a discussion of the relation between the homogeneous galactic model and the halo model as applied to radioactive nuclei (specifically, to $^{10}$Be nuclei). The Appendices present some information on the work of the 15th International Conference on Cosmic Rays and also a number of remarks complementing the lecture in the light of new data, etc.
