Abstract

The first postulate of special relativity states that light propagation is isotropic in all inertial frames of reference according to the equations (......). However, Smoot et al. have observed, that radiation coming from the direction of constellation of LEO is blue shifted, whereas radiation coming from the opposite direction is red shifted. Putting the measured shifts into the Doppler shift equations yielded the absolute motion of our solar system to be approximately equal to 390km/s in the direction LEO. Hence, light propagation is anisotropic in our solar system. One of the above equations has thus been falsified by Smoot et al. This implies that the Lorentz transformations, which are the basis of special relativity, are not valid in our universe. Both theories - special and general relativity - have therefore been refuted. Marinov's coupled mirrors experiment had yielded essentiallly the same result already in 1975.
