[Homework]2012-05-14 阿尔伯特·爱因斯坦 Einstein—26

The Lick party was forced to use substandard equipment. Campbell has no choice but to take the risk. He has the total solar eclipse all to himself and may never have another opportunity like this again. Campbell's party travels to Goldendale, Washington and gets ready for the coming eclipse. It was close to home so a whole family went. Campbell's goals is to photograph the stars that emerge in the brief period when the sun is hidden by the moon. But on Saturday, June 8th, 1914, it seems that the universe is once again not ready to yield its secrets. Clouds moved in and it looked like he wouldn't even get the observations and Russia would be repeated which he hated. And suddenly just at the crucial time when they needed the clear sky, the clouds parted.
Campbell begins taking photographs of the spectacle. It starts when the moon first comes in contact with the sun and then starts to move over the face of the sun. The sun becomes smaller and smaller and smaller until a last moment when the sunlight actually passes through the valleys between the mountains of the moon. And then this bright brilliant beam of sunlight, and then the sun is entire eclipsed. It is the blackest of black you will ever see. My first eclipse. I literally lost my breath. It was like jumping in the cold water where you go huh huh huh, you know, you can't believe it. It is breath taking. It's literally breath taking. It's gorgeous sight.
It's just wow, the most powerful experience that I've ever had in my life.
The New York Times had a reporter and they wrote in an article, clouds fall away for eclipse. There is a little subtitle, test of Einstein's theory. This is the first that an American newspaper mentioned Albert Einstein.
Campbell assigns his most trusted astronomer Heber Doust Curtis to analyse the photographs to prove or dis-prove Einstein's theory.
