Short biography
Eddington was a Quaker and, therefore, a conscientious objector to military service in WWI. In 1919 he was part of the expedition which obsevered the solar eclipse from the island of Principe, near Africa. His observations of the bending of light was the observational 'proof' of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. Several of Eddington's works were meant to explain science to the layman.
