In
the KennedyThorndike experiment, they used a Michelson interferometer with
different arm lengths and measured the fringe shift of the returning beams at
the detector as the earth rotated the device to various orientations with
respect to sidereal space.





They
theorized that an aether wind should be detectable under these circumstances
if it exists. However, the correct calculation using Lorentz's 1904
Generalized theorem of corresponding states as shown above results in a null
result even if the aether exists.





Thus
the KennedyThorndike experiment was incapable of distinguishing between the
the predictions of Special Relativity or Lorentz ether theory, since both
theories predict a null result. The arm lengths, angle of orientation of the
arms, velocities in two





different orientations, refractive index and
wavelength of light are all adjustable in this simulation. The speed of light
predicted always remains 3E8 m/s.
