Description

On the 29th of May, 1919 the moon eclipsed the sun to allow a thin ray of light from the Hyades star cluster to fall into Sir Arthur Eddingtons telescopes. Through his observations, he proved that light did not travel on straight lines around the sun, but rather on curved ones that deflected light. Eddington's announcement made headlines, catapulting Einsteins fame in the English-speaking world.
