Lemaitre
1894-1966

A Belgian priest who, in 1927, proposed the theory of Big Bang .

The theory was first a subject of derision, hence the name "Big Bang" was proposed to make fun of it. But in 1929 Edwin Hubble discovered galaxies that are flying apart. Then, in 1960's, a background cosmic radiation was discovered. All these support the theory of Big Bang.
