Arthur Eddington & General Relativity
Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington, OM, FRS (28 December 1882 – 22 November 1944) was a British astrophysicist of the early 20th century. General relativity, or the general theory of relativity, is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1916 and the current description of gravitation in modern physics. /5
We're learning about Arthur Eddington, who is responsible for confirming the Theory of General Relativity

The 1919 enabled Arthur Eddington to test Einstein's general theory of relativity using this equipment
This is the most famous image ever. Taken by Arthur Eddington in 1919, it helped prove General Relativity.
Legend is that when Arthur Eddington was asked, "do you think only 3 persons understand general relativity?" He retorted, "who's the 3rd?"
1919 Albert theory of general relativity was tested (later confirmed) by Arthur Eddington & And…
For those who hesitate to cross the borders of lab to give meaning to science, i strongly recommend them the movie "Einstein and Eddington" The movie that shows bond of science between an English scientist (Arthur Eddington) and a German scientist (Albert Einstein) during fierce situation of World War I to formulate Theory of General Relativity. -movie is based on a true story and shows science is not prisoner of border and religion-
It was 1916 and Albert Einstein didn’t like where his calculations were leading him. If his theory of General Relativity was true, it meant that the universe was not eternal but had a beginning. Einstein’s calculations indeed were revealing a definite beginning to all time, all matter, and all space. This flew in the face of his belief that the universe was static and eternal. Einstein later called his discovery “irritating.” He wanted the universe to be self-existent—not reliant on any outside cause—but the universe appeared to be one giant effect. In fact, Einstein so disliked the implications of General Relativity—a theory that is now proven accurate to five decimal places—that he introduced a cosmological constant (which some have since called a “fudge factor”) into his equations in order to show that the universe is static and to avoid an absolute beginning. But Einstein’s fudge factor didn’t fudge for long. In 1919, British cosmologist Arthur Eddington conducted an experiment ...
