Explanation of Michelson-Morley Experiment

Authors: Michael Tzoumpas

The explanation of Michelson-Morley experiment is based on both actual and apparent reduction (equal) of light speed. The actual reduction of light speed happens only when the light is transmitted on moving material systems, on which the cohesive pressure of the proximal space is reduced. The apparent reduction of light speed happens due to the aberration of light, which can be used as a detection criterion of the absolute motion. Lorentz factor of special relativity is the tool for the mathematical expression of the problem that had arisen from the Michelson-Morley experiment. Of course, the time dilation was an ingenious and pioneering idea, which has been accepted, ignoring, though, the real cause of the slowing of the moving clock, i.e. the phenomenon of motion. However, this same reduction factor appears as well in the unified theory of dynamic space1 with the Galilean transformations, by calculating the actual reduction of the light speed on moving material systems, not based on the second postulate of relativity.
