    A reconsideration of current faulty Michelson-Morley experiment explanations
    Posted on Saturday, July 30, 2005 @ 08:23:30 GMT by vlad

    Anonymous writes: We all know the famous Michelson-Morley experiment, which is currently attributed as the cornerstone for Einstein’s foundation of his relativity theory. All textbooks in Physics until now have quoted this experiment in a happy but hasty way of explanation, then to deny Aether existence. To detect the fault of current explanations, I sincerely request you to open the textbooks that explain Michelson-Morley experiment and carefully look at the experiment equipment diagram with a careful imaging of what really happens in such experiment.


    Just remember that our Earth is moving with a high speed in space, the Michelson- Morley equipment also move with the same speed in space. This is the fact Michelson and Morley have based on to devise their equipment to check the existence of Aether.
    By this motion of the equipment, any light beams that are perpendicular to the course path of Earth’s motion (and at the same time, equipment’s) will be lost somewhere in the space far behind the equipment and will not be reaching the receptor end to cause interference.

    To compensate for the motion of the equipment, only light beams that are slightly slanting, with an angle alpha away from the perpendicular line to the path of Earth’s motion, will be able to reach the receptor end. Also by this slanting angle alpha, the center reflector-splitter mirror in Michelson-Morley experiment equipment is not ideally 45 degrees slanting to the path of Earth’s motion

    Michelson and Morley have probably, unconsciously and without notice, tilted the centerpiece mirror away from the ideal 45-degree position.

    By all of these, the lengths of the two light paths are equal and will not cause interference at all.

    Perhaps we can stop using Michelson-Morley experiment to deny Aether existence and have to think out another experiment to check whether Aether exists or not.
    What really lead Einstein’s mind to his extra ordinary theory is quite strange enough.

    Sincerely yours, an Aether and ZPE supporter,

    Aether quest.

    Thank you. As the MM experiment was a great failure to the experimenters (they indeed wanted to establish the existance of an aether), 1925 they performed another experiment (or rather Michelson did). This time, he noted an aether drift and could calculate the speed of earth through space, thereby firmly establishing the existance of an aether.

    This experiment is however, to the benefit of doubters of an aether, conveniently forgotten.

    Reference: A.A. Michelson, H. G. Gale & F. Pearson, Astrophysical Journal, v. 61, p. 140; 1925.

    We can look at
    http://www.newtonphysics.on.ca/michelson/michelson.html, by Paul Marmet, to have a detail calculation of light paths

    Nevertheless, we can figure out the scene without having to make a complex calculation.

    The tricky point here is that, if an Aether does exist, any light path that comes out from a same spatial source point S at the same time point t1 in Aether, and reach another same destination point D at another same time point t2, after whatever courses of traveling, will have some equal length L of light path in the Aether. Then at the destination point, the phases of light wave will be of the same value and will not cause interference at all to be observed! Whatever complicated and seemingly artful design Michelson-Morley equipment may be, if light paths are originated from one same source and reach another same destination in Aether, the net result of light interference will always be null.

    We can move, twist, or rotate the moving frame in anyway, but the path lengths will be equal. The small interference detected was caused by other factors (equipment not ideally symmetrical, or, if the center-piece mirror is tilted and not ideally smooth-even, light path will pass one way through the center-piece mirror by a thicker glass medium, while passing through the other perpendicular way by a thinner glass medium). Added to null effect as described, this will not cause any fringe move.
