原始语种摘要: The Michelson experiment raised controversy from early on. The first controversy for this experiment was between Woldemar Voigt and Hendrik Lorentz. Voigt explained the result of the Michelson experiment by means of the Doppler effect in a paper of 1886 (published in 1887), in which he concluded that the result is not a surprise, while Lorentz maintained that the result of this experiment is a big surprise and great commitment is required for its explanation. The controversy, which was very friendly, was won by the physicist who had more authority at the time; but, as is concluded in this paper, the truth was on the side of Voigt.
