  • Why Edward Morley Didn't Win the Nobel Prize in Physics

    by Les Hardison
    At a critical point in the development of modern physical theory, two dedicated scientists determined that the speed of light was independent of the velocity of the system in which the measurement was. They could not explain how this could be true, and it was left to Albert Einstein to provide the answer.
