Research on stellar energy in the 1930s. Eddington-Milne models controversy encourages stellar structure work. Switch from classical astronomy to astrophysics during graduate studies (Niels Bohr); contact with physicists (George Gamow, Lev Landau). Background of his review articles. Discussion of Gamow's theory; comparison of Hans Bethe and Carl Friedrich Weizsäcker's work on nuclear reactions in stellar interiors; comments that energy production problem was solved by physicists.
