The author is retired from the society (after have been dismissed) and works on theoretical physics, phylosophy of science, while performing different cheap experiments to test his new electron theory and also develops a new working process for a cesium without beam clock.
The DeWitte Experiment is clear proof that the ether exists
The reason why science has ignored it is because it supports the concept of ether, which challenges Einstein?s spacetime, and because it?s an amateur experiment and so gets little or no professional recognition (sadly, Roland DeWitte has died. His work was never published in a scientific journal, and his website is no longer active). Wisp theory fully supports his historic experiment and predicts its positive result. It is simply due to Doppler effect caused by the motion of the Earth through the ether. DeWitte found that the direction of motion of the Earth, relative to the ether, is in close agreement with that found many years earlier by Miller.
In 1933, Dayton Miller suggested that the Earth was in motion with the ether, moving toward Dorado in the southern celestial hemisphere, the swordfish, right ascension 4 hrs 54 min., declination of -70? 33?.
All we can say at present is that the Earth is moving relative to the ether with a speed of about 400km/s possibly along a line joining the constellations of Draco in the northern hemisphere and Dorado in the southern hemisphere. However, further experiments are needed to resolve matters, as the possibility that the direction of ether flow is closer to the ecliptic plane cannot be ruled out.
Wisp theory shows that that motion of the ether affects the relative speed of light, not its direction, and so there is no surprise that the relative motions of the Earth to ether and to the cosmic background radiation (CBR) are different. The CBR is isotropic - it has the same temperature from all parts of the sky, varying by one part in 10,000. But a large-scale anisotropy in the CBR has now been established, which suggests the Sun is moving relative to it, toward the constellation of Leo. - Kevin Harkess (http://uk.geocities.com/kevinharkess/feedback/feedback.html)
