“Arago’s inadvertent test of relativity” in Optics & Photonics News!

This is just a short post to announce that my third popular science article written for a magazine appeared online today!  “Arago’s inadvertent test of relativity” has appeared in the May issue of Optics & Photonics News, the news magazine of the Optical Society of America.  The article discusses how François Arago stumbled across the first experimental evidence for Einstein’s special theory of relativity, though he didn’t realize it!

Unfortunately, the article is only available to subscribers; however, if you’re interested in reading about Arago’s exploits, you can look at a blog post I did on the subject a few years ago at this link.
