Proving Einstein Right: What's In It & Why I Co-authored It

Thursday, February 27, 2020 - 4:00pm
Phillips Auditorium
Brown
Abstract: 

The book "Proving Einstein Right" was created with the goal of telling a "scientific band of brothers story" about the lives of astronomers who strove from 1911 to 1922 to observe the deflection of starlight by the sun. A perspective on the importance of their stories for students and non-scientists today is presented.
