Experiment Proposed to Resolve Simultaneity and One-Way Light-Speed Issues
|Title||Experiment Proposed to Resolve Simultaneity and One-Way Light-Speed Issues|
A feasible experiment with two separated atomic clocks in solar orbit is proposed to answer the question: "Will clocks synchronized by light signal still measure one way light speeds of c when uniformly accelerated to a new velocity?" Expected results are presented based on the fact that moving atomic clocks really do slow down and on the assumption that the one way speed of light depends upon the reference frame in which it is measured. These results differ from those predicted by relativity theory. Analysis shows that the effect of error sources on critical measurements is negligible. Results from actually performing the experiment will either support or contradict the concept of the relativity of simultaneity presented in the Special Theory of Relativity.
