Eclipse : how the 1919 solar eclipse proved Einstein's theory of general relativity

Image of item
In 1915, British astronomer Arthur Stanley Eddington was fascinated with Albert Einstein's new theory of general relativity. The theory talks about how forces push (acceleration) and pull (gravity) objects in space. Einstein said that the sun's gravity could pull and bend light. To test this, astronomers decided to photograph the 1919 solar eclipse. Read the exciting story of how Eddington's eclipse photos changed science forever! -- back cover.
