Criticism of SRT: All hitherto experiments assumed to be a proof of SRT seem to be the proof of GRT. SRT can not be proven experimentally

Origin of the mistake:

If the motion is assumed to be inertial then the route of a clock can be approximate as a set of stright segments and he changes of velocity has to be ignored

Ignoring the changes of velocities is then the source of the H&K paradox

Probably in other experiments the similar mistakes has been repeated however only experiment Hafele and Keating leads to such spectacular paradox.


In experiment with meson π there is taking into accountonly stright segment of worldline. The changes of velocity of the meson (acceleration and slowing) are ignored similarly to the ignored changes of velocity in the H&K experiment

In all the experiments, the examined object had to change its velocity in order to register its time dilation

Maybe the relation between the time and velocity is an result of GRT not SRT and the formula describing the time dilation looks as if it was a result of SRT while it was a result of GRT as it took place in case of the H&K experiment???

If so, then:
  • Do exists any experiments proving pure SRT ?
  • Is SRT the theory describing true processes taking place during uniform motion or SRT is only the set of computational tools being in fact approximations of exact GRT solutions, and the source of time dilation is not the uniform motion but the change of velocity???
