In 1925, the English expedition that had proved the Theory of Relativity in the interior of Ceará in 1919 was already world famous and, of course, had great repercussion with the Brazilian press.
When Einstein arrived in Brazil, physician Aloísio de Castro expressed how much the Brazilian population was proud of the expedition to Sobral, says Tolmasquim. Kindly, Einstein replied: "The idea that my mind conceived was proven in the sunny sky of Brazil."
