Einstein and Eddington
HBO will bring together Gollum and Dr. Who to change the world of physics. HBO Films and the BBC will present Andy Serkis, as Albert Einstein, and David Tennant, as Sir Arthur Eddington, in a TV movie about the creation of Einstein's theory of relativity. "Einstein and Eddington," chronicles Einstein's work on the theory that he began while he was a clerk at the Swiss Patent Office. After a 1905 paper on special relativity, Einstein spent almost a decade developing the theory of general relativity, which introduces the notion of curvature in space-time. British scientist Sir Arthur Eddington was one of the most prominent astrophysicists in the first decades of the 20th century and the first physicist who understood Einstein's idea. The pair kept up a correspondence during the time when their countries squared off in World War I. It was Eddington's 1920 article, which offered proof of the relativity theory of gravitation using data from the 1919 solar eclipse, that introduced Einstein's theory of general relativity to the English-speaking world. "Einstein and Eddington" has a screenplay by Peter Moffat and Philip Martin will direct.
