Edwin Hubble
Edwin Hubble is a American astronomer witch was born in November 20th 1889 but sadly died in September 28th, 1953.
Full name:Edwin Powell Hubble

Stephen Hawking
Stephen William Hawking was born 8 January 1942. He is an English author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge also the person who proved that the world had a beginning with observational Evidence.
Penzias and Wilson
Penzias and Wilson by accident with their antenna picked up microwave radiation all around us and supported Hawking’s theory. By the middle of the 20th century, cosmologists had developed two different theories to explain the creation of the universe. Some supported the steady-state theory, which states that the universe has always existed and will continue to survive without noticeable change. Others believed in the Big Bang theory, which states that the universe was created in a massive explosion-like event billions of years ago (later to be determined as 13.8 billion).
With this discovery the whole world was shocked and changed the theories and opinions.

Thanks for listening
From Karan, Manveer and Kye :)
George Gamov was a theoretical physicist– notably an early advocate and developer of Lemaitre’s Big Bang theory.
Gamow was born in the city of Odessa, Russian Empire (now in Ukraine) to mixed Russian-Ukrainian parents. His father taught Russian language and literature in high school, and his mother taught geography and history at a school for girls. In addition to Russian, Gamow learned to speak some French from his mother and German from a tutor. Gamow did not learn fluent English until his college years and later. Most of his early publications were in German or Russian, but he later switched to writing in English for both technical papers and for the lay audience.
