„Ich bin zu der Überzeugung gelangt, dass die Bewegung der Erde durch kein optisches Experiment erfasst werden kann“
Albert Einstein, Kyoto Universität, Japan 14. Dezember 1922
"While I was thinking of this problem in my student years, I came to know the strange result of Michelson’s experiment. Soon I came to the conclusion that our idea about the motion of the Earth with respect to the ether is incorrect, if we admit Michelson’s null result as a fact. This was the first path which led me to the special theory of relativity. Since then I have come to believe that the motion of the Earth cannot be detected by any optical experiment, though the Earth is revolving around the Sun."
