Albert Einstein’s theory of basic relativity, released in 1915, defined gravity as the influence of massive objects, like worlds and stars, curving space around them. This was extremely different from the method Isaac Newton had actually specified gravity over 200 years previously: Newton described a drawing in force that kept planets and stars in orbit with each other. If Einstein was right, then light would likewise flex near enormous items. And in 1919, two British explorations set out to evaluate it by photographing an overall solar eclipse. By comparing the position of stars with the sun in front of them and another with the sun elsewhere, Arthur Eddington and his team proved that the stars’ evident positions moved throughout the eclipse. This was the very first, but not the last time Einstein’s theory of general relativity was evaluated and shown, and Einstein became a star overnight. He stayed a popular culture icon for the rest of his life.
