Description:

This web page contains a simulation that recreates the Michelson-Morley experiment. The main objective of this experiment was to prove the existence of the medium in which light propagated: the luminiferous aether. This simulation allows the user to experiment with the interferometer by changing the speed of light and rotating its plane. It also has the possibility to include the aether. At the bottom of the page a l;ink to the theory involved is provided.
