Mathematician, physicist, astronomer and cosmologist, Sir Fred Hoyle is perhaps best known, in scientific circles, for his explanation of the origin of the elements from hydrogen nuclei in stars (a process known as nucleosynthesis) and for developing (with Sir Hermann Bondi and Thomas Gold) the controversial steady-state theory of the Universe (which assumes the continuous creation of matter). In 1950, in the last of a series of radio lectures on astronomy that he delivered on the air for the BBC, Hoyle coined the term Big Bang to characterize the competing expanding-Universe theory, which has since become the dominant paradigm. This term has now become a permanent addition to the language of cosmology.… (mer)

Fred's been my companion at breakfast so often this year that I suppose I shouldn't be surprised Manny's been a bit testy at times. I expect that question's been at the back of his mind 'If he's here for breakfast, where was he last night?' In fact I haven't taken Fred to bed, not once. It hasn't been a question of primness, loyalty or even the bed not being big enough for the three of us.

It's more Fred's unflagging enthusiasm, energy and opinionated observations of everything, bombarding the reader as an independent thinker might. One finds oneself stopping to reflect every few pages of a rather long book not because you reach some sort of sciencey stumbling block but because he's just presented a theory about 1920s hat fashion, or the efficacy of geese as domestic lawnmower or the reasons we organise into society. He carries you along in a way that is infectious, thrilling - and tiring. I love reading in bed, but this is more theoretical than practical. Mainly I fall asleep by the time I find my place. In the mornings, however, I'm irritatingly bouncy and chirpy and happy. That's the time to pick up Hoyle.




Hoyle was nothing if not stubborn. I'm thinking of something that plays only a small part in his chosen story....
