your teacher is correct, the null result was only explained by einstein, not whether it existed or not, i read in some science magazine(dont ask ;p) earlier in the year scientists are still trying to prove the existence.Sirius Black said:My teacher said we cannot simply say that the null result of Michelson-Morley's experiment disproved the existence of aether model as it just FAILED to find any evidence of aether's existence. However, Einstein's first postulate says that "the laws of physics are the same in all frames of reference." thus the principle of relativity cannot be violated by optical experiments. Didn't this imply that aether does not exist?
(altho the existence of aether model does not matter now, i'm still keen to the know whether it exists or not?)
