The starting point for Einstein on his road towards what is now called special relativity was the experimental observation that the speed of light has the same value in all inertial frames of reference. This curious fact of nature was discovered by the famous [[experiments:michelson_morley|Michelson-Morley experiment]]. | The starting point for Einstein on his road towards what is now called special relativity was the experimental observation that the speed of light has the same value in all inertial frames of reference.
