Einstein, Eddington and the Eclipse. Travel Impressions integrates an essay by Ana Simões and a graphic novel by Ana Matilde Sousa.
The essay analyses the scientific, social, political and religious aspects of the two British expeditions, which headed towards Príncipe and Sobral to observe the 1919 total solar eclipse, and test Albert Einstein's light bending prediction.
The graphic novel takes excerpts from A.S. Eddington's correspondence as a starting point for a graphic narrative of experimental and impressionistic contours.
