Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Arthur Robert Hinks, CBE, FRS (26 May 1873 - 14 April 1945) was a British astronomer and geographer. As an astronomer, he is best known for his work in determining the distance from the Sun to the Earth (the astronomical unit) from 1900-1909: for this achievement, he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society and was elected a fellow of the Royal Society. His later professional career was in surveying and cartography, an extension of his astronomical interests. Hinks was educated at Whitgift School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. in 1892.show more
