The Ether Revisited

  • Adolphe Martin

We will show that the Lorentz transformation applies in Galilean space-time, such that the laws of electromagnetism and classical mechanics become invariant. Assuming the existence of a gas permeating all space and matter, we conclude that the mechanical properties of gases, known for over a century, are sufficient to explain the known physical phenomena such as electromagnetism, light propagation, gravitation, quantum mechanics and the structure of elementary particles, i ncluding the photon.
