Einstein Introduces Special Relativity (1905)

In physics, the theory of special relativity generalizes Galileo's principle of relativity—that all uniform motion is relative and that there is no absolute state of rest. Though physicists Hendrik Lorentz and Henri Poincaré had made contributions to the theory already, Einstein provided a radically new interpretation in his 1905 paper "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies." In it, Einstein redefines the concepts of space and time and abolishes the concept of "aether," which is what? More...

So-called 'dark matter' and 'dark energy\ of some modern physicists feel as speculative and fictitious as 'aether' and 'phlogiston' of their early predecessors.

Einstein's work on Pacifism is of even more consequence... the work prefaced by Bertrand Russell, Einstein on Peace

Aether is the basic substratum of all space; aether is the raw essence of the Universe. Aether permeates the innermost recesses of all matter. Without it the universe is contrary to nature, contrary to reason and common sense. Without it the universe is utterly absurd.


Sans Aether, the Universe Becomes “The Preposterous Universe”

Without Aether the Universe Becomes “The Preposterous Universe”. Without phlogiston we all freeze to death.
