There was a preferred coordinate system in which the ether was at rest. There the
velocity of light in vacuum was equal to c. In other coordinate frames the velocity
of light was presumably not c. To avoid setting electromagnetism apart from the ...
This simple explanation of aberration contradicts the hypothesis that the velocity
of light is determined by the transmitting medium (our atmosphere in this case) or
that the ether is dragged along by the earth. In neither case would aberration ...
John David Jackson, Patrick Thaddeus Jackson. is that of light in the system K',
namely, u' = c, and v is the orbital velocity of the earth. Then the angle 0 is related
