A New Relativity (NR) theory by retired NASA and Stanford University scientist, Professor Selwyn Wright, provides an extension to Einstein’s relativity by redefining our understanding of the Universe and updating aspects of modern physics in a comprehensive and rigorous manner. It challenges Einstein’s Special Relativity as a more compliant and logical theory, providing a new basis for the unification of electromagnetic and gravitational theories.

Einstein’s motional electromagnetic (EM) and gravitational theories appear to have two inherent deficiencies that have prevented them from becoming a unified theory. Firstly not recognizing that the propagation medium (ether) is the essential thread (reference) that runs through these developments. Secondly not realizing that light and gravity are two forms of the same field – unsteady electric and steady difference electric fields, using the same medium.

The New Relativity (NR) corrects and extends Einstein’s relativity. Correction allows Einstein’s relativity to be explained in causal (common sense) terms. The extension explains new and interesting predictions regarding time travel, colonizing the universe and solving the theory of everything.

The new theory extension re-establishes a preferred frame of reference. It creates links between electrical sources and observers in motion, and between electric fields and gravity. NR predicts and confirms the same measured aspects of Einstein's Special Relativity (SR) based on a medium. It distinguishes between source and observer motion, which predicts additional measured aspects. The medium provides the bridge between the Lorentz transform, accelerating frames and gravity, providing a basis for the unification theory of the Universe.

The goal is not only to present a new theory, it is to bring renewed attention to electromagnetic ether theories, especially now that Dark Energy and the Higgs Field are gaining acceptance based on the notion of a propagation medium. A dark energy mechanism for expanding the universe could be provided by a repulsively expansion of the medium, overcoming the attracting field of gravitational mass using the same medium. Also Higgs’s (1964) residual gravitational field throughout the Universe, which creates inertia, also appears to use the same medium.

Without acknowledging the existence or even the possibility of an ether in our institutions, it has become difficult to build on the work of great scientists such as Maxwell’s medium based field equations and on Lorentz's medium based motional transform. Information presented on this site provides conclusive evidence for the existence of an ether, re-interpreting old experimental proofs, even suggesting new experiments where the effects of the ether can be readily observed and measured. New Relativity fits elegantly into place and answers difficult questions and reverses the usual arguments that support Einstein's ether-less SR.
