British astronomer Arthur Stanley Eddington was born on this day in 1882 at Kendal, Westmorland, England. Eddington correctly worked out that stars shine due to the collision and annihilation of atomic particles in the centres of stars. He also led an expedition to test Einstein’s Theory of Relativity.
