The present state of research of the shape of the energy spectrum of primary cosmic ray nuclei and the chemical composition in the region of the socalled, “knee”, and beyond is highly unsatisfactory. We are not very successful when using extensive air showers. In the present paper an attempt is made to explain what is the cause of such a situation. The experimental results as to which there is no doubt that they were wrongly interpreted, will be indicated.
