The Michelson-Morley experiment of 1887 is hailed as a milestone leading to the eventual development of special relativity. This experiment will take on a new historic meaning as it equally disproves the theory of special relativity. The experiment has four aspects that need to be equally predicted and observed from any reference frame, they are;timing;phase including Doppler shifts;light path geometry;information content;Special relativity confirms the first three but fails on the fourth. As information content is a physical state, special relativity fails as it contradicts the axioms that the theory is based on.
