The more than hundred years old conflict between Michelson's results and his prediction is analyzed and explained. Michelson predicted that a second order effect of an ether-wind at least equal to our planets velocity in relation to the centre of our planetary system should be detectable. This means an effect in two-way propagation time of at least equal to 10-8 of c. The result is instead an observed effect less than 10-14 of c, according to [1].
