Nope.That 8 km/s was probably within the experimental error for their tiny experiment.

A statistical analysis shows that there is no reason to prefer 0kms over 30kms. Their separations from 8kms are negligibly different. For all practical purposes, they are equally unlikely as the right result if 8kms is correct from a mathematical viewpoint.

It would be like aiming for the double 20, hitting the double 10 and saying that was correct because someone else got the double 17.

Recent tests of Lorentz invariance have reduced the differences in the speed of light to one ten-billionth of the second MM experiment you refer to, and the result isstillindistinguishable from zero, limiting a postulated æther speed to less than 1micrometerper second, for an Earth orbital speed of 30 km/s.See here for one such example: https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.91.020401

Again you refuse to engage with what has been clearly explained to you. Performing an entirely new experiment that assumes the truth of what we disagree with is entirely unresponsive.

The M&M experiment can be conducted to test for an aether. In fact, they provided their data, so we can reconstruct their work and find the mistakes they made.
