Michelson-Morley expt=ARGH!

  1. Dec 1, 2008 #1

    Recently I've been doing a little research of my own into spec. relativity, out of personal interest (I've applied to study physics at uni). However, one thing I can't get my head around is the Michelson-Morley experiment. I've tried using books and pictures, but I just can't understand what's going on. :confused:

    Could anyone point me to a video or something that could explain the experiment, or offer their own explanation?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    (1st post BTW!! :smile:)
