Paper Abstract

We propose to determine experimentally the speed of the solar system relative to the selected inertial reference system. On the basis of parallel Lorentz transformation it is shown that for the path length ~ 30 km the diurnal and annual variations of the pulse delay time will have an amplitude ~ 0.24 μs. In accordance with the relativity principle, in any inertial reference frame (IRF) the speed of light is isotropic. We use herein a less stringent assertion: the only inertial system, S0, exists in which the speed of light is independent of direction; both the Earth and the Sun move relative to the system S0.
