    In Volume 26, Number 6, November 2005 issue of European Journal of Physics, there is a special section dedicated to "Einstein and a Century of Time". There are several papers that discuss the historical issues of Einstein's work in SR and GR, and beyond...

    These papers are available FREE for the first 30 days they appear online. So go to the IoP electronic journals website if you want a copy of these papers.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    http://www.iop.org/EJ/toc/-ff30=all/-ffissn=0143-0807

    seems to be the right link to the iop page for grabbing these articles.

    ps - looks like you have to register - interestingly enough, someone else has already registered the account for "pervect".

    Since the journals are going to go POOF any day now, I will wait to add this to the list of experimental evidence for SR that I already have. But I will post the latest of a series of experimental results here.

    Test of the Isotropy of the Speed of Light Using a Continuously Rotating Optical Resonator

    S. Herrmann et al., PRL v.95, p.150401 (2005).

    They have produced even a more stringent ceiling of the isotropy violation parameter from the Robertson-Mansouri-Sexl "test theory" to (-2.1±1.9)×10-10, an 8-fold improvement!
