Russian astrophysicist George Gamow is seen as the father of the Big Bang. Gamow was a creative thinker who felt quite at home taking a sidestep into another discipline. His contribution to cracking the genetic code is seen as “perhaps the last example of amateurism in scientific work on a grand scale.”
