MMX, Miller ether drift, Mt. Wilson
Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific
The object of the experiments of Michelson, Pease, and Pearson was to test Miller's results by a purely differential method. Observations were made in the large grinding room of the optical shop of the Mount Wilson Observatory in Pasadena, at times corresponding to Miller's maximum and minimum effects, and also, as a check, at times midway between maximum and minimum.
