VII. 25. Caro signor Collega! Anch’io sono dell’opinione, ché un movimento di un etere con un tanto grande è practicamente inadmissibile.[2] Dio a creato il mondo con più eleganza ed intelligenza. Lei a ragione di con- frontare con questi experimenti di Miller i fatti dell’aberrazione. La theoria di Stokes-Planck e molto artificiale e secondo mia opinione non può spiegare la legge di aberrazione.[3] Sarei molto curioso di conoscere la vera causa del phenomeno di Miller. Non dubito della validità della theoria di relatività. Suo A. Einstein. [Berlin,] 17 July 1925 Dear Colleague, I am also of the opinion that a motion of an ether with such a large is practically inadmissible.[2] God created the world with more elegance and intelligence. You are right to confront these ex- periments by Miller with the facts of aberration. The Stokes-Planck theory is very artificial and in my opinion cannot explain the law of aberration.[3] I would be very curious to know the real cause of Miller’s phenomenon. I don’t doubt the validity of the theory of relativity. Your A. Einstein AKS. [124 351]. The postcard is addressed “Prof. Ing. Giovanni Giorgi, Corso V. Em. 39, Roma (Ita- lia)” and postmarked “Ber[lin] 18.7.25 3–4N[achmittags]” with a secondary postmark “Roma Centro 23–24 20.VII 1925.” z u ∂z ∂u z u ∂z ∂u
