PUsken, of the Canadian Dcnun- Observatory, in the annual report of the Smithsonian Institution for 1933, which has lust been issued. The sun is about Ugnt-years from the center of the disk, or a little less one-fourth the way from the center to the edge. Dr. Plaskett sates. This is a jolt to man's origi- nal egocentric conception of his own corner of the universe as being located at its very csnter.

The whole "disk" with its 000.000 stars is revolving around this centre of gravity in Sagittarius at a speed, cf abc-.it 200 Jriltszeters a sec- ond, nearly times faster than j man ever has traveled on the earth. So vast are the dimensions of "The Dr. Plaskett states, that it requires about years for the sun to make a single revolution. It has raade only five or six revolu- tions during the entire span of geo- logic time on earth. The space between the stars is not empty, it has been found, but is filled with an extremely tenuous "cosmic dust." the presence of which is detected by its effect on the spec- tra of starlight passing through it. The speed of rotation cf any part of the the report states, de- pends on its distance from the centre. Thus the speed of rotation of a star of Ught-years nearer the centre than the sun is about 355 kilometers a second. Five thousand light-years farther away it is about 265 kilo- meters a second the galaay is actually ro- tating has been for some years a mat- ter of conjecture among astronomers because of the extremely complicated apparently orderless movements of different parts of the system. Dr. Plaskett, however, considers that the case is now proved because of the ac- cumulation of evidence from diverse lines. He presents six arguments for the contention. The present status of man's knowl- edge regarding the contents of space Itself is summarized in the report by Dr. Charles G. Abbot, secretary of the Smithsonian Institution.
