## Theory of Observation Redefining Special Theory of Relativity and Explaining Jenkins-Fischbach Effect

**Authors:** Subodh Vashist

Counter-intuitive concept of decrease in rate of time and increase
in mass due to motion are fundamental conclusions of Special Theory
of Relativity(STR). STR successfully explains the decrease in nuclear
decay rates due to motion until recently, when nuclear decay rates are
found to depend on Earth-Sun distance and solar activities like
solar
ares. Present paper is an alternate theory to STR and produces
the same mathematical results of STR but with completely different
meaning of the observed effects due to motion. Utilising simple
spherical model for properties of matter, present theory also explains the
dependence of nuclear decay rates on Earth-Sun distance and solar
activity. On the other hand present theory assumes the rate of time and
mass to be constant, thereby keeping the theory self-contained, while
accounting for all the relativistic effects, including Newton's Second
law of motion which is mathematically inconsistent in STR.
