The new Idea of Ether: Why the Minchelson-Morley experiment didn't detect the Ether

In the Minchelson Morley experiment a light was reflected between mirrors of the interferometer. Below is presented one arm of the interferometer. During the experiment the interferometer was rotated and once the direction of light in the interferometer was paralell to the hypothetical velocity in relation to the Ether, and once it was perpendicular.

In case of the classical theory the velocity in relation to the Ether should be added to or substracted form the velocity of light.

In case of the FER model, the motion in relation to the Ether is the motion along the trajectories and the change of velocity of the interferometer changes only the angle of trajectories of the experimental setup where V=sinφ and it has nothing to do with the speed of the setup in relation to the Ether (this is the speed along the trajectory and this speed does not depend on the angle of the trajectory).

Description of the velocity and the speed of light in the FER can be found in chapters Velocity and Speed of light

As we can see, in case of the FER model, the change of velocity is equivlet to the rotation the whole experimental setup in the FER and it does not change anything in the experiment. Therefore, the Minchelson Morley experiment can not detect the motion of bodies in relation to the Ether - in other words - the motion along a trajectory
