In this exposition, the predictions of the emission theory of light, concerning absolute velocities of
isolated systems relative to immobile space, have been computed and discussed in detail. In addition, the related aspects of this theory have been reviewed and investigated at length. The aim is to explore and to determine precisely those predictions, in order to facilitate the tasks of possible experimental testing, in the future, and to dispel long-standing errors and numerous misconceptions surrounding this important subject.
