Data collected from distant galactic sources challenged the constancy of light speed and as a consequence E=mc2 was in doubt; the team brought in Professor Paul Davies of Arizona State to evaluate the results. His analytical acumen were necessary to show that light from distant objects would work well with the most famous equation in physics and that Albert Einstein’s Relativity theory would escape unscathed. No matter how he manipulated the data, Davies was left with no way to make the stellar observations correspond with scientific norms. The evidence forced an unexpected finale and that was that Einstein’s Special Relativity would have to be invalidated since light could not be constant speed ‘c’ – a declaration that goes against everything that science has known about modern physics.
Ever faithful to precedent, Professor Davies reacted with abject disgust that the German Jewish scientist might have made a profound error, he spoke some time ago on a radio network located in the great nation of Australia:
“It’s one of the basic laws of physics” meaning that the light moves at a constant speed and: “yet the evidence seems to suggest that it might be varying.”
As is readily apparent from the above statement, light speed cannot be constant according to observational data; this information comes from an extremely well respected team of scientists that indicate that a presumption of modern physics that has stood for over one hundred years is completely wrong. Thus, according to a valid source, it seems that light’s velocity is not a constant at all. I repeat, it should be understood that Mr. Davies is no light-weight from the borders of physics that few ‘respectable’ scientists wish to go; on the contrary he is an award winner from the generally accepted areas of physics.
Further reviews of the quasar information indicated that there were noticeable reductions in the photons’ speed. Thus, it is without a doubt Albert Einstein and those who believe in Special Relativity are in error in more ways then one. In other words, not only is the speed of light not fixed, it is changing almost all the time. If the quasar observational results and analytical data are correct then they should be reproducible by others; the aftershocks of such a discovery would alter our current understanding of other theoretical avenues.
As stated above, this result will necessarily impact other parts of physics including the mysterious quantum physics. Would there be an affect on the ubiquitous E=mc2? Specifically, since the constancy of the speed of light is one of the fundamental concepts of special relativity and E=mc2 what impact will this have on this formula? It appears without a doubt, that the verification of the stellar results would require that textbooks would have to rewritten and a new idea on space-time reality would necessarily replace Einstein’s ideas.
However, most scientists are not yet ready to abandon Einstein, relativity theory and E=mc2. It has become too ingrained in the minds of most people to so easily abandon a long held theory. Something more substantial than a research team’s experimental analysis must be found to clearly discredit E=mc2. Thus, invalidation of its most basic equation E=mc2 would require a clear indication of error from the basic equations that support relativity theory.
