Eddington's team observed the total solar eclipse and successfully completed the experiment which proved Einstein's Theory of General Relativity
100 years later there will be another solar eclipse. The Centenary Expedition aims to re-create this historic experiment, document the journey and celebrate the impact this discovery had on modern space and science research
Why was 1919 important?
1919 was the year that Eddington and his team successfully observed the total solar eclipse and used the data obtained to conclude that Einstein's theory was more accurate than the existing Newtonian theory. This conclusion revolutionised the way in which we understand the universe.
Does eclipse hunting and deep space chats get your pulsars up? Learn how you can join our team!
We shall be travelling to Chile to observe the total solar eclipse with the aim of re-creating the experiment first made by Eddington, proving Einstein's Theory of General Relativity.
What is Einstein's Theory of General Relativity?
Einstein's Theory of General Relativity redefined our understanding of the universe. For a better understanding as to what exactly space-time is, check out this cool video!
