When Einstein conducted thought experiments, he imagined himself moving at the speed of light with a mirror in front. He was later forced to discard the idea of ether and he concluded that light must travel at the speed of light regardless of wherever and whatever speed an observer is moving.

My question is: How does discarding the idea of ether make him conclude the constancy of the speed of light?
