Arthur Stanley Eddington OM fue un astrofísico británico muy conocido en la primera mitad del siglo XX. El límite de Eddington, el límite natural de la luminosidad que puede ser radiada por acreción a un objeto compacto, tomó su nombre.

Es famoso por su trabajo relacionado con la teoría de la relatividad. En 1919 escribió un artículo titulado Report on the relativity theory of gravitation , que transmitió la teoría de la relatividad de Albert Einstein al mundo anglosajón. Debido a la Primera Guerra Mundial, los avances científicos alemanes no eran muy conocidos en Gran Bretaña.

Demostró que la energía en el interior de las estrellas era transportada por radiación y convección. Estos trabajos quedaron plasmados en el libro The Internal Constitution of the Stars .

„Science has an important part to play in our everyday existence“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington
Science and the Unseen World (1929), Context: Science has an important part to play in our everyday existence, and there is far too much neglect of science; but its intention is to supplement not to supplant the familiar outlook.<!--VIII, p.83

„We do not want a religion that deceives us for our own good.“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington
Science and the Unseen World (1929), Context: We do not want a religion that deceives us for our own good.<!--VII, p.68

„Matter and all else that is in the physical world have been reduced to a shadowy symbolism.“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington
Science and the Unseen World (1929), Context: Matter and all else that is in the physical world have been reduced to a shadowy symbolism.<!--III, p.33

„It is the reciprocity of these appearances—that each party should think the other has contracted—that is so difficult to realise.“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington
Space, Time and Gravitation (1920), Context: It is the reciprocity of these appearances—that each party should think the other has contracted—that is so difficult to realise. Here is a paradox beyond even the imagination of Dean Swift. Gulliver regarded the Lilliputians as a race of dwarfs; and the Lilliputians regarded Gulliver as a giant. That is natural. If the Lilliputians had appeared dwarfs to Gulliver, and Gulliver had appeared a dwarf to the Lilliputians—but no! that is too absurd for fiction, and is an idea only to be found in the sober pages of science.... It is not only in space but in time that these strange variations occur. If we observed the aviator carefully we should infer that he was unusually slow in his movements; and events in the conveyance moving with him would be similarly retarded—as though time had forgotten to go on. His cigar lasts twice as long as one of ours.... But here again reciprocity comes in, because in the aviator's opinion it is we who are travelling at 161,000 miles a second past him; and when he has made all allowances, he finds that it is we who are sluggish. Our cigar lasts twice as long as his.<!--pp.23-24

„…The present revolution of scientific thought follows in natural sequence on the great revolutions at earlier epochs in the history of science.“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington
Einstein's special theory of relativity, which explains the indeterminateness of the frame of space and time, crowns the work of Copernicus who first led us to give up our insistence on a geocentric outlook on nature; Einstein's general theory of relativity, which reveals the curvature or non-Euclidean geometry of space and time, carries forward the rudimentary thought of those earlier astronomers who first contemplated the possibility that their existence lay on something which was not flat. These earlier revolutions are still a source of perplexity in childhood, which we soon outgrow; and a time will come when Einstein's amazing revelations have likewise sunk into the commonplaces of educated thought. The Theory of Relativity and its Influence on Scientific Thought (1922), p. 31-32
