Scientific proof of the general theory of relativity was obtained during the total eclipse of the sun in 1919. An expedition to the Gulf of Guinea led by the British astronomer Arthur Stanley Eddington measured the direction of a star close to the sun and found that its apparent position was deflected by the sun’s gravitational field in the amount predict by Albert Einstein’s theory.
