    Here’s a few possible flaws of Special Relativity.

    Length contraction with velocity

    Mass increase with velocity

    Time dilation with velocity

    Constancy of the velocity of light

    Maximum possible interaction

    If possible, we could focus upon each of these separately,

    plus how they relate and interact.

    What criticism is there for any of these?

    We could consider first, the length contraction and mass growing at a high velocity. FitzGerald and Lorentz had arrived at them, almost two decades before Einstein’s Special Relativity.

    That they had, instead, theorized these two ideas in response to what seemed to them (and many others) the null experiment results that Michelson and Morley had with the interferometer.

    If the aether actually does exist, how different is the concept in our day, compared to the universe that Michelson and Morley thought they were dealing with?
