Abstract

This article considers the key-ideas for modern scientific understanding of the origin and evolution of the Universe. George Gamow is one of the first scientists to create the theory of the Big Bang the theory of great explosion. Gamow is a famous physicist who came from the city of Odessa (Ukraine) andgot interested in the origin of chemical elements. He suggested that in the past of the Universe before it had been created by the «Big Bang» (the theory of great explosion), the Universe had had much more substantial density and higher temperature than now. He was the first person to focus on unique properties of the Universe and to suggest existence of cosmic microwave background (CMB). The following disclosure of the CMB started the era of modern cosmology.
