From the history of physics. 150th anniversary of the birth of P.N. Lebedev


"As I deeply understand the importance and greatly admire the poetry of experiment,..." (on the eve of P.N. Lebedev's anniversary)

Whatever we think of the eminent Russian physicist P.N. Lebedev, whatever our understanding of how his work was affected by the circumstances in and outside of Russia, whatever accounts of the highlights of his twenty-year career and personal life and of his great successes and happily not so great failures; and whatever stories of his happy moments and his countless misfortunes, one thing remains clear — P.N. Lebedev's skill and talent served well to foster the development of global science and to improve the reputation of Russia as a scientific nation.
