An accurate analysis of the Michelson–Morley experiment shows that the speed of light is not a constant relative to a moving frame

This paper shows how the miscalculated result of an experiment caused the birth of the theory of relativity. It reveals the error made by Michelson in his calculations to obtain the result of the experiment he performed with Morley, which was designed to detect the speed of the earth relative to ether. Thus, Michelson anticipated observing an outcome that understandably would not occur. This paper shows the correct calculations, proving that the very experiment that led to the invention of the theory of relativity can in fact be a proof that the theory is wrong. It also shows that as far as the existence of ether is concerned, the Michelson–Morley experiment is irrelevant.


L'article montre comment le résultat mal calculé d'une expérience a provoqué la naissance de la théorie de la relativité. Il révèle l'erreur commise par Michelson dans ses calculs pour obtenir le résultat de l'expérience qu'il a réalisée avec Morley et qui visait à détecter la vitesse de la terre par rapport à l'éther. Ainsi, Michelson prévoyait d'observer un résultat qui, naturellement, ne se produirait pas. Cet article montre les calculs corrects, prouvant que l'expérience même qui a conduit à l'invention de la théorie de la relativité peut en fait être une preuve que la théorie est fausse. Cela montre également qu'en ce qui concerne l'existence de l'éther, l'expérience de Michelson-Morley n'est pas pertinente.
