Although I do not think that both cited texts are too difficult to be understood by those to whom they are intended (not necessarily specialist, but only experts in the fundaments), the truth is that no one, so far, has decided to pronounce on them, despite my offer to pay for the work (up to the whole of my resources, about 100.000 €, if pointed out an invalidating essential failure) and, in many cases, a certain positive predisposition (expressed before reading).

I have proposed the performance aboard the ISS of the crucial Michelson-Morley experiment, whose obvious ease and interest (for any defender of one or another theory) does not support excuses; so, the intention of ignoring it equals the recognition of lack of confidence in the own professed theory.

" $200,000 dollars seems a small price to pay. If the most famous null result in science was right, at least we’ll finally be sure. And if it was wrong, then Einstein is no longer king of the universe. No wonder Maurizio Consoli is keen to get started. This experiment could be dynamite. Consoli, of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics in Catania, Sicily, has found a loophole in the 19th-century experiment that defined our modern view of the universe. The experiment established that light always travels through space at the same speed, whatever direction it is heading in and whatever the motion of its source: there is no way to put the wind in light’s sails. Einstein used this foundation to build his special theory of relativity, but it seems his confidence may have been premature. Consoli’s paper, published in Physics Letters A (vol 333, p 355), shows that there might be a wind that blows in light’s sails after all: something called the ether. " ... smic-wind/
