Is There any impact of the concept of Einstein’s New Ether in science

  1. Oct 29, 2013 #1
    Is There any impact/will there be any: of the concept of Einstein’s New Ether in science today?
    I red that even though Einstein rejected aether in his relativity theory he introduced it back in 1920 to explain his theory of gravity. I don't know if he ever published it as a theory or it has any scientific impact
    Is it valid in anyway?

    This statement is completely unrelated to any ether theories. It is just a word describing spacetime, and I think the word was a poor choice. No, this word has no scientific impact.
