In this paper – a short updated version of our review paper about "The impact of space exper-
iments on our knowledge of the physics of the Universe (Giovannelli & Sabau-Graziati, 2004)
(GSG2004) and subsequent updating (Giovannelli & Sabau-Graziati, 2012a, 2014a) – we will
briefly discuss old and new results obtained in astrophysics, that marked substantially the re-
search in this field. Thanks to the results, chosen by us following our knowledge and feelings, we
will go along different stages of the evolution of our Universe discussing briefly several examples
of results that are the pillars carrying the Bridge between the Big Bang and Biology.
We will remark the importance of the joint venture of ‘active physics experiments’ and ‘passive
physics experiments’ ground– and space–based either big either small in size that, with their
results, are directed towards the knowledge of the physics of our universe. New generation exper-
iments open up new prospects for improving our knowledge of the aforementioned main pillars.
