Caption: English astronomer Frank Watson Dyson (1868-1939, left) and British astrophysicist Arthur Stanley Eddington (1882-1922, right). Dyson was Astronomer Royal and director of the Royal Greenwich Observatory from 1910 to 1933. He was noted for his study of solar eclipses and also implemented the radio time system for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and the transmission of 6 'pips' on the hour. Eddington is most famous for directing the 1919 solar eclipse expedition, the results of which confirmed the increased bending of starlight by the Sun as predicted in Einstein's theory of general relativity. His writings introduced Einstein's ideas to the English-speaking world. He was Chief Assistant at the Royal Greenwich Observatory.
