Disclaimer first. Albert Michelson was a genius. I collect memorabilia of his life and experiments, especially his speed of light work in southern Ca. However; given our current tech I think we could redo his famous experiment. Please tell me if you think this new version of the famous Michelson Morley Experiment would work. Here it is: Instead of using Michelson's rotating table let's use our rotating Earth. Replace the interferometer mirrors with selected stars. Over the course of a year measure the speed of light from those stars, if necessary we could send light from these stars into Michelson interferometers to see if there are fringe shifts. We could choose stars that at different directions of the Earth's motion around the sun. Physicists and astronomers, would look at the data and see what information it reveals. It could be a great experiment. Observatories from around the world could participate. My question is this: Does this proposed experiment have merit? If so, let's do it!
Note to moderator: I tried to load a Michelson Morley Experiment tag but was unable to do so, if possible please add this tag. Thank you.
