Despite the null interpretation of their experiment by Michelson and Morley, it is quantitatively shown that the outcomes of the original experiment, and all subsequent repetitions, never were null. Additionally, due to an incorrect inter-session averaging, the non-null results are even larger than reported. Contrary to the received view, Illingworth’s and other repetitions of the experiment were consistent with Miller’s positive results. On the theoretical side, a new systematic error is… CONTINUE READING
