Episode 15 (Video) – Moving Systems (Part 4)

Posted by Steven Bryant On July - 13 - 2008

In this episode, we look at Special Relativity and how it is related to the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems.  After reviewing this video series, I hope that you are left with a better understanding of my model as well as of Einstein’s theory and how the two are related.  In addition, I hope that you have a better understanding of Einstein’s derivation as well as how one can reasonably conclude the effects of Time Dilation and Length Contraction if you only have one type of coordinate system instead of two.  Lastly, I hope that this material helps you to better understand Einstein’s derivations as given in Sections 2 and 3 of his 1905 paper and in his Relativity book.  Part 4 of the series build upon the material presented in the first three parts.

Episode 6 – SRT, the CICS model, and the Michelson-Morley Experiment

Posted by Steven Bryant On August - 28 - 2007

In Episode 6, I will answer questions that I received after Episode 5 was aired. We’ll also take a look at the Michelson-Morley experiment. This landmark experiment has been interpreted as returning 0 km/s as the answer, supporting Einstein’s SR theory. In this episode, I’ll explain, on a conceptual level, how to evaluate the Michelson-Morley data to reveal an Earth Orbital Velocity of 30 km/s, removing support for SR and building support for an ether-based model.


Episode 5 – Understanding Einstein’s SR Theory

Posted by Steven Bryant On August - 20 - 2007

In Episode 5, we look at Einstein’s Special Relativity Theory in the context of the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems. The goal is to help the listener understand the origin of Einstein’s speed of light “speed limit” and understand why Einstein felt that a twin moving in a rocket would age more slowly than her twin who remained on earth.
