Einstein’s theory of General Relativity (GR) provides a comprehensive description of space, time, gravity, and matter at the macroscopic level. Due to GR cosmology left the realm of philosophy and was legitimately incorporated into
Special Relativity shortcomings:
- CERN famous experiment “Measurements of Relativistic Time Dilatation for Positive and Negative Muons in a Circular Orbit,” Nature, vol. 268, pp. 301–305, 1977. Shows clear evidence for a time dilatation effect. However, the measured value of time dilatation does not depend on acceleration (order of 10^15 g) in contrary to GR and traditional explanation of the Twin paradox.
- Lorentz-Fitzgerald Length Contraction was introduced in order to explain the null results of the Michelson–Morley experiment and save the Ether theory. However, the Lenth Contraction was never verified experimentally and the data from the modern accelerators (e.g. LHC at CERN) shows no evidence for such a contraction.
- Experiments: Sagnac, Dayton-Miller interferometer, Trouton-Noble experiment,
