Episode 4 – Relativity Fails To Explain A Key Experiment

I revisit the Michelson–Morley experiment to reveal a subtle, but significant mistake in their experiment. The original analysis does not statistically support an answer that aligns with any known theory – including relativity. Once their experiment is properly analyzed I show that they detected an Earth orbital velocity of 30km/s, which makes their experiment a success. This finding supports Modern Mechanics and invalidates relativity.
