It is shown that the results of Zeeman's experiments with a glass block moving at speed v relative to the Earth's surface should also depend on the Earth's speed V in the universe or with respect to a preferred frame Sp. The results received did not confirm the participation of speed V in those experiments. Therefore, these experiments also confirm that the Earth's surface is the preferred frame for the (radial) velocity of light. New experiments are proposed to test or rather reject special relativity.
