Who is the author of the Big Bang theory?

Georges Lemaître
Tycho Brahe
Jean Bernard Léon Foucault
Edwin Salpeter
Since Georges Lemaître first noted in 1927 that an ex­pand­ing universe could be traced back in time to an orig­i­nat­ing single point, sci­en­tists have built on his idea of cosmic ex­pan­sion. The sci­en­tif­ic com­mu­ni­ty was once divided between sup­port­ers of two dif­fer­ent the­o­ries, the Big Bang and the Steady State theory, but a wide range of em­pir­i­cal evidence has strongly favored the Big Bang which is now uni­ver­sal­ly ac­cept­ed.
