Google Doodle: Remembering cosmologist Georges Lemaitre: On this 17 July, Google paid tribute to Georges Lemaitre, the Belgian priest, cosmologist, and astronomer. Lemaitre is known as the Big Bang theory, which says that the universe originated from an atom, which he called the cosmic egg. He was the first to derive what is now known as Hubble's law and made the first estimation of what is now called the Hubble constant - a unit of measurement that denotes the rate at which the universe is expanding. These were confirmed in 1929 by Edwin Hubble, who discovered that the redshift in light coming from distant galaxies is proportional to their distance, suggesting that the universe is expanding.
Georges Lemaitre was a lecturer at Catholic University of Leuven.
Born on July 17, 1894 in the Belgian city of Charleroi, Lemaitre wore many hats in his lifetime. However, two years later, Einstein accepted the calculations to be correct.
In 1927, Lemaitre came up with a family of solutions to Albert Einstein "s equations of relativity, which described an expanding universe, rather than a static one". He served the Belgian Army during World War I. He entered a seminary after the war and was ordained a Catholic priest in 1923. In 1951, Pope Pius XII publically announced that the Big Bangtheory offered scientific proof of Christian religious belief regarding the origin of life, to which Lemaitre responded negatively. He studied physics at the University of Cambridge, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Still Lemaitre was not completely overlooked in his day. Besides the Francqui prize in 1934, he received several other global scientific awards, and a crater on the moon was named for him in 1970.
Lemaitre passed away on June 20, 1966, shortly after learning of the discovery of cosmic microwave background radiation.
