A thorough review of the Michelson?Morley experiment reveals that the experiment had been not only misinterpreted but also misconceived. The reasons of misconception and misinterpretation have been found to be
  1. Doppler Effect of light was not taken into account
  2. The motion of the solar system was not also taken into account.
Since this experiment formed the basis of misinterpretation of absence of luminiferous ether in the space and as the consequence of absence of luminiferous ether the concept of length contraction in the direction of motion, theories of relativity, space?time concept and big bang theory were adopted. The basis of all these theories and concepts is challenged. This article is the detailed and corrected version of the article ?Ultimate Proof of Energy Theory of Matter & Cosmology' [1] necessitated by the article ?Foundation of Theory of Everything; Non-living & Living Things' [2]. The article finally explains Michelson-Morley experiment.
