Explain Aether

  1. Dec 5, 2003 #1
    Can someone explain aether to me in depth? I hear talk about it, and feel rediculous not knowing what they're talking about.

    brief description and history of the ether:

    There's not much to say about the ether (not to be confused with the class of substances in organic chemisty of the same name) except that it is a defunct physical model.
