Reasons for the growth of interest in astrophysics and astronomy are discussed. The two main reasons are firstly the solar eclipse of June 1983 and secondly publicity given to the regular N.A.S.A. shuttle flights. However, radioastronomy will develop much faster than optical astronomy because the site requirements are much less stringent than for optical astronomy and the technical infrastructure is readily available.
