Fred Hoyle (1915-2001). Caricature of the British astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle. 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).
