Chasing the 1973 Solar Eclipse in a Concorde

In 1973, the combination of a total solar eclipse with an exceptionally long duration and the new Concorde supersonic transport allowed an unprecedented scientific opportunity. The History Guy recalls when a group of scientists chased the moon's shadow in an experimental plane. It is history that deserves to be remembered.
