Homework:

Campbell says when was to come home by the back door, and see nobody. Einstein in Berlin is shattered. The expeditions are failures. Freundlich and his team spend several months as prisoners of war in Russia. For Einstein it is a disaster. Proof of his most revolutionary theory general relativity is slipping between his fingers. The outbreak of World War I leaves Einstein’s Russian eclipse expedition in shambles, and threatens to further obscure the long sought proof of the relativity theory on which Einstein has elaborated for years.

The war killed communication between scientists. The open exchange of ideas was gone overnight. Ties were cut. Once the United States joins the war, astronomer William Campbell sees things differently. Campbell dedicated himself to the eclipse problem, independently of his former colleague from Germany who he now veered as the enemy.

In Berlin, the whole atmosphere changed, when Einstein looked out of his window, he would see a lot of patriotism. In his eyes, the whole nation went crazy. All of Einstein’s expectations of the kind of city he was gonna live in disappear, they’re gone. Hundreds of thousands of German young men marched enthusiastically, his best colleagues, Plank and Haber were enthusiastic about the war, his close friend Fritz Haber, like Einstein, was born German and Jewish, Fritz Haber converted to Christianity, and try to assimilate as much as possible. One of his great moments of pride was when he actually received a commission in the German army, really almost unheard of award for a converted Jew.  Einstein saw this as ridiculous. Haber said I’m a chemist, I understand the chemistry of the chlorine atom very well, I know that chlorine gas is poisonous, can I turn this into a useful weapon?
