Caption: Sir Fred Hoyle (1915-2001), British astronomer. Hoyle is most famous for his adoption of the steady-state theory of the universe, as opposed to the Big Bang theory (he coined the term 'Big Bang' in a pejorative sense). He was also a prolific science populariser, writing numerous books on astronomy and astrophysics, and giving many public lectures. He was Plumian Professor at the University of Cambridge (1958-1972), and President of the Royal Astronomical Society (1971-1973). He was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society (1968), the Bruce Gold Medal of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (1970), and the Royal Medal of the Royal Society (1974).
