This paper analyzes data from GPS, the Hafele-Keating Experiment and muon decay measurements that are claimed to support Special Relativity’s claim of time dilation. It is found that this data actually does not support Special Relativity and in some cases is evidence against Special Relativity. The “time dilation” data is also analyzed in terms of its historical development and in terms of the Twin Paradox.
A brief discussion of the 'Open Letter On The Twin Paradox' and the other 10 supporting pages in the web site are described. A summary of the findings of the associated study Report is given. Special attention is focused on the mainstream response including a persistent flaw.
The Twin Paradox has raged for more than a century. Relativists have devised a number of resolutions for the paradox. All these reconciliation arguments are accepted by the physics community even though many are mutually contradictory. Presenting the rather obvious flaws in these reconciliation arguments had yielded very few conversions. However, after decades of experience, new techniques have emerged that show great promise and have led to individual successes.
?The Twin Paradox: How To Win The Debate? discussed the author's 45 year experience with debating the Twin Paradox and new approaches to that debate. That long and detailed experience with the Twin Paradox yielded some novel conclusions about LAT and the potential for a modified SRT.
(Updated 2009): There is wide disagreement about how the net proper time difference in the Twin Paradox accumulates even among those who contend ?there is no paradox?. The proposed experiment will resolve this debate and also will show how to significantly extend currently accepted theory. The experiment will have the most impact on space-time physics since the Michelson-Morley experiment and promises to correct some unjustified conclusions drawn from the Michelson-Morley experiment.
