The tODic of cosmoloay. This branch of astronomy is the qreatest challenqe, one is always confronteil. with the danerer of beinq caDtured by prejudices. In the last decades the situation chanered. At least cosmology has transformed into a respectahle science, which it was not say 5n or 6n years aqo. There remain deep unsolved questions heqinninq with the very existence and/or birth of the Tlniverse. But there are also in modern Cosmoloqy definite successes, there are achievements in the understandinq of the lIniverse.

This Ya. B. ZELDOVICH 48 is not so unusual as it seems at first glance: pressure is negative is some direction in a stretched solid. The liguids can also support negative pressure when surface tension and adhesion to the walls prevents the formation of bubbles. But the combination combina tion p = - ~ is really unusual, never yet found experiment but prophecied by modern theoretieal theoretical physics for some specific situations. A shall describe the importance and usefulness of this assumption for cosmology, leaving out the explanation how did the physicists (quite independently of cosmology) come to such unusual equation of state.
