The Universe in astronomy, or the cosmos in cosmology, are synonyms for all matter and energy within the entire spacetime continuum in which man evolves. Current science assumes that the Universe was formed as described in the Big Bang Theory, which states that the Universe originated approximately 13.75 billion years ago. Belgian astronomer Georges Lemaître introduced the Universe theory in 1927, which said that distant galaxies are redshifted. Two years later, the American astronomer Edwin Hubble found experimental evidence for Lemaître’s theory. Hubble proved that all galaxies are moving away from earth at speed proportional to their distance from earth, a physical law now called Hubble-Lemaître’s Law. This fact implies a primordial beginning from a certain point, and in 1931 Lemaître hypothesized that the Universe must have arisen from the explosion of a “primordial atom”.
