Kennedy & Thorndike

  1. Dec 31, 2006 #1
    Good evening,

    I am currently working on experimental proof about special relativity, and I came across Kennedy & Thorndike experiment, and their try to save the luminiferous aether with Lorentz-Fitzgerald contraction.

    Unfortunately, I can't find any original article on the Internet. Wikipedia says they had published a paper in the Physical Review, but I wasn't able to find it.

    Could someone provide me with their original article ?

    Many thanks !

    It is here Experimental Establishment of the Relativity of Time
    You need a subscription to download.

    Yes, I have seen this page before.

    But you need a subscription to download it, and I only need this one... not a whole subscription to the Physical Review (and alone it costs 20 $... which is a bit expensive for what I want to do with it).

    I suppose it's not illegal to ask if a member of the Physical Review could provide me with the article...?

    You should go to a library. I'd start with the local university.

    Yeah, if only I am rich, I will be a very good physicist!
    Not forgetting those living without three meals a day. but has the potential to be the next Einstein.
    No wonder there are so many piracies.
