This note was written in 2005, just after the hundredth anniversary of special relativity,
on the occasion of the following event. A report has appeared in press that “the American
space-lab telescope Wmap detected in the Universe a symmetry axis of the angular
distribution of the relict background microwave radiation”. It is hard to imagine a “better
gift” to the centenary of SRT. Proponents of SRT (which are the most people among
scientists) immediately titled this discovery “The Axis of Evil”, since it wrecks their
notions that there is no absolute reference frame in the World. Such reference pegs turns
out to exist and not only in outer space but in each ordinary Earth’s laboratory. It is this
that I inform about the readers of this note, in case if they know nothing about it.
