This brief preface explains why the editorial board of the journal Yadernaya Fizika (Physics o f Atomic Nuclei) decided to reprint the article of the three authors, which was published in 1928 and which is hardly accessible to the present-day reader; tells briefly the history of its creation; and traces, from 1881 to 2001, the fate of the questions discussed in it and the impact of this article on modern fundamental physics.

Translated from Yadernaya Fizika, Vol. 65, No. 7, 2002, pp. 1403–1405.
