The Misunderstood Bradley Effect
Year: 2008 Pages: 3
A new interpretation of starlight aberration is described, and aberration is thereby united with entrained ether, as well as with absolute ether. It is also explained how stability in planetary orbits can be united with a reasonable speed of gravity. Aberration of starlight was discovered by Bradley in 1728, united with entrained ether by Stokes in 1845, and demonstrated to be in conflict with entrained ether by Challis in 1880. See . Since then scientists have tried in vain to unite entrainment and aberration. The conflict between a reasonable speed of gravity and stability in planetary orbits is of more recent date.
