Excitement Builds Around the Wyoming Total Eclipse And General Relativity


In August, there will be a total eclipse of the sun visible over the United States.  No. 1 and her mom, our resident physics professor, turned out this diagram of starlight bending around the sun because the sun's mass curves space.  Can a general relativity experiment be far behind?

In other news, metallic ink pens do interesting things under photo filters.

The following day, this all inspired No. 1's derivative artwork :)
