• Constant Speed of Light? No. Constant WAVELENGTH of Light!

    Doppler effect in light (stationary emitter, moving observer):


    Two obvious facts in this particular scenario:

    (A) The speed and the frequency of the light pulses vary proportionally for the observer.

    (B) The wavelength (distance between light pulses) remains constant.

    (A) and (B), valid in ANY scenario (moving emitter, moving observer, presence or absence of gravity), will become basic principles in future, Einstein-free physics.

    If the speed of light is assumed constant (Einstein's physics), the formula

    (frequency) = (speed of light)/(wavelength)

    has absurd corollaries, e.g. "Any frequency shift entails (is caused by) an inversely proportional wavelength shift". In contrast, the formula has revolutionary corollaries if THE WAVELENGTH OF LIGHT IS ASSUMED CONSTANT (future, Einstein-free physics):

    Corollary 1: Any frequency shift entails (is caused by) a proportional speed-of-light shift.

    Corollary 2: If the emitter and the observer (receiver) travel towards each other with relative speed v, the speed of light as measured by the observer is c' = c+v, as per Newton's theory.

    Corollary 3: Spacetime and gravitational waves (ripples in spacetime) don't exist. LIGO's "discoveries" are fake.

    Corollary 4: Light falls in a gravitational field with the same acceleration as ordinary falling bodies - near Earth's surface the accelerations of falling photons is g = 9.8 m/s^2. Accordingly, there is no gravitational time dilation: Einstein's general
    relativity is absurd.

    Corollary 5: The Hubble redshift is due to light slowing down as it travels through vacuum. The universe is not expanding.

    Richard Feynman: "I want to emphasize that light comes in this form - particles. It is very important to know that light behaves like particles, especially for those of you who have gone to school, where you probably learned something about light
    behaving like waves. I'm telling you the way it does behave - like particles. You might say that it's just the photomultiplier that detects light as particles, but no, every instrument that has been designed to be sensitive enough to detect weak light
    has always ended up discovering the same thing: light is made of particles." https://www.amazon.com/QED-Strange-Theory-Light-Matter/dp/0691024170

    Implication (Feynman would not accept it of course): Variable wavelength of light https://youtube.com/watch?v=xsVxC_NR64M is an unrealistic concept. Actually, it contradicts the principle of relativity. If the wavelength (distance between light pulses)
    varied with the speed of the emitter, the emitter would measure it inside his spaceship and so would know his speed without looking outside.

    The wavelength of light is constant (for a given emitter); the frequency and the speed of light vary proportionally.
