Experiments are used to confirm the predictions of models and theories. While they cannot positively confirm the existence of a single theory as the only way of explaining the result, they can be used to validate the predictions of the model or theory.
Some proponents of SRT suggest that Einstein’s theory is the only theory that is experimentally supported by experiments like Michelson-Morley or Ives-Stillwell. This section will explore this assertion with surprising results!
Comparing SRT to the CICS Model
The Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems model offers corrections to Einstein’s equations, introduces a new set of equations, and offer predictions that differ from those defined by SRT. Since it corrects specific problems with SRT, it must offer equal or better quantitative predictions of the experimental results.
