Why Edward Morley Didn't Win the Nobel Prize in Physics
Les Hardison, author
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. But, his solution, Special Relativity, raised more questions some of which are still unexplained. Did Edward Morley let the correct answer slip away?
