Caption: Geoffrey Burbidge (born 1925), American astronomer. Burbidge was born in England and earned his PhD in theoretical physics an 1951. He worked at many American universities and observatories before taking a post at the University of California in San Diego, where he has been since 1962. In 1957 he, his wife Margaret Burbidge, William A. Fowler and Fred Hoyle showed how all of the elements (except the very lightest) are produced by nuclear reactions in stellar interiors. He has also continued to challenge the prevailing big bang models and in 2000, long after nearly all cosmologists had accepted the evidence for an evolving universe, he, Fred Hoyle, and N.V. Narlikar expressed continued support for a (quasi) steady state universe.
