Starlight bent by the Suns Attraction: The Einstein Theory Featured Print

Starlight bent by the Suns Attraction: The Einstein Theory

This diagram drawn by W. B. Robinson illustrates Professor Einstein's Theory that light is subject to gravitation. The drawing was based on British observers photographs at the eclipse of the sun on the 28-29th May 1919. Photographs of stars were taken during the total eclipse, which were then compared to other plates of the same region taken when the sun was not in the neighbourhood. Comparing the two plates, the stars on the eclipse plates seemed to be pushed outwards, thus starlight was found to be bent by the sun's attraction. Dr A. C. Crommelin, a British observer working on the project, wrote that straight lines in Einstein's space cannot exist; they are parts of gigantic curves

United States Navy - Goodyear ZSG-3 airship K-120

United States Navy - Goodyear ZSG-3 airship K-120 (BuAer number 33512), based at Oakland Naval Air Station in California, being used as a recruitment billboard for the US Naval Reserve. The K-class blimps originated in 1931 as the USN's first blimp with the car attached to the envelope, as opposed to suspended from cables. Given a variety of designations, with modifications and design changes, this particular K-class started life ca1940 as a ZNPK-3 (Z=airship, N=non-rigid, P=Patrol, K=K-class), the N (for non-rigid) was dropped in 1947 and re-designated again in 1954 as a ZSG-3 (Z=airship, S=anti-submarine, G=Goodyear). The USN fairly rapidly shut down lighter than air operations from 1959, with the last blimps leaving the inventory in 1961. Date: 1959
