Google Doodle honours Georges Lemaitre's Big Bang theory

Share

Google Doodle: Remembering cosmologist Georges Lemaitre: On this 17 July, Google paid tribute to Georges Lemaitre, the Belgian priest, cosmologist, and astronomer. He is most famous and known for creating and for formulating the Big Bang Theory, which holds the whole universe that started in the cataclysmic explosion of small, primeval "super-atom".

It was the combination of astrology and physics that led him to make his greatest discoveries - about the universe expanding and the basis of the Big Bang Theory.

He was also an alumnus of the University of Cambridge and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge where he arrived and grows up as an acquaintance with the findings of American astronomers Edwin Hubble and Harlow Shelpey.

Boy rescued from Thai cave says he's "very happy" now
However, since Adul was busy conversing with the divers he could not translate so one of the boys told the coach to be patient. While trapped for 10 days in the dark, they said they clawed at the walls of the cave with rocks in an attempt to escape.

He was ordained a priest in 1923 and died on 17th July 1966.

"Your calculations are correct, but your physics is atrocious", Einstein said, two years before changing his mind. His role as a priest and a scientist rarely intersected.

However, it was Lemaitre who was first to suggest this proposal, in his 1927 report, "A homogeneous Universe of constant mass and growing radius accounting for the radial velocity of extragalactic nebulae".

The other attack occurred in the neighboring town of Brookhaven, in the waters off Sailors Haven Beach, an Islip spokesman said. The boy "stumbled out of the water" into a lifeguard tent, where the lifeguard dressed puncture wounds, officials said.

Post the war, Georges Lemaitre completed his education from various colleges and in 1925 he returned to Belgium and became a part-time lecturer (and later a full-time professor) at the Catholic University of Leuven, where he remained for the rest of his career.

For his contribution to enhancing the understanding of the universe, Lemaitre received in 1934 the prestigious Francqui prize, the highest scientific accolade in Belgium - and one of his nominators was Einstein. Moving forward, Lemaitre continued his work on the big bang theory and published more reports with more details about his learning.

Lemaitre's work was widely recognised around the world, and are hugely influential until this day.

He was the No. 1 player in the world then, and quickly followed the Open with a win at the PGA Championship the next month. Marc Leishman, who has shown his links game proficiency several times at The Open, tunes his game at Carnoustie.
