Abstract Searches for anisotropies due to Earth's motion relative to a preferred frame — modern versions of the Michelson-Morley experiment — provide precise verifications of special relativity. We describe other tests, independent of this motion, that are or can become even more sensitive. The existence of high-energy cosmic rays places strong constraints on Lorentz non-invariance. Furthermore, if the maximum attainable speed of a particle depends on its identity, then neutrinos, even if… Expand
