The astronomy actuates orbicular astronomy, practical astronomy, an astrophysics, a gravitational astronomy, sidereal astronomy, extra-galactical astronomy, a cosmogony, a cosmology and a number{series} of other sections. Astronomy - the most ancient science which has arisen from practical requirements of mankind (a forecast of the seasonal phenomena, the account{invoice} of time, a position finding on a surface of the Earth, etc.). The birth of the modern astronomy has been connected to failure{refusal} of a geocentric conception of the world (Ptolemy, 2 century) and changing by its{her} heliocentric system (N.Kopernik, is grey. 16 century), with the beginning of telescopiform probes of heavenly bodies (G.Galilej, nach. 17 century) and discovering of the law of universal gravitation (I.Njuton, kon. 17 century) . 18-19 centuries were for astronomy the season{term} of data storage about the Solar system, the Galaxy and a physical nature of asters, the Suns, planets and other space ph. In 20 century in connection with discovering of the world of galaxies has become to develop extra-galactical astronomy. Probe of spectrums of galaxies has allowed E.Hubble (1929) to find the general expansion of the Universe predicted by A.A.Fridmanom (1922) on the basis of theory of gravitation, the built A.Ejnshtejnom in 1915-16. Technological revolution of 20 century has rendered revoljutsionizirujushchee influence on development of astronomy as a whole and astrophysicses in particular. Building of optical and high resolution radio telescopes, application of missiles and artificial satellites of the Earth for extra-atmospheric astronomical supervision{observations} have reduced in discovering a lot of novel species of space bodies: radiogalaxies, quasars, pulsars, X-ray sources, etc. Have been developed by a fundamentals of the theory of evolution of asters and a cosmogony of the Solar system.

Problems of a structure of superdense objects and the bound with them of processes (capture of substance from an environment, akkretsionnye discs, etc.) and problems of a cosmology are considered with a relativistic astrophysics.
