Lemaître, Abbé Georges (1894-1966)
Belgian born Roman Catholic priest, mathematician, and astrophysicist. In a
1927 note he proposed that the universe originated from the explosion of
concentration of matter and energy that he called a "cosmic egg" or
"primeval atom." This was one of the first expressions of what is
today the Big Bang Theory of cosmic origins.
