One of the most awesome experiments of all time conducted by the dude in 1 during a total solar eclipse confirmed which famous theory for the first time?

Hint: Look at the stars in 2.

Late question is sooper late. Sorry folks, will be kept open longer.

Answer:
Arthur Eddington confirmed theory of relativity by showing that light bends due to gravitational force. Since you can see stars during an eclipse, he measured the position of stars near the sun and showed that they had shifted positions.
