It is unnecessary to perform experiments to prove the invalidity of Special Relativity Theory (SRT) since the logical errors are sufficient. The following simple example shows how SRT violates the causality principle.
Let two rockets are in mutual rest at considerable distance in a free cosmic space. Their clocks are synchronised and start at the same moment that they both accelerate at the same rate towards one another for one hour. After acceleration, they move uniformly. Their clocks automatically register the duration of one hour of their acceleration and then reset to zero time. The rockets approach each other with high uniform speed v by which, according to SRT, in the reference frame of any rocket, time flows two times (twice) slower in the other. After a certain time, their reference frames coincide and they exchange signals showing the elapsed times on their respective clocks. What do they read? Which clock shows a greater or lesser time? There is no reason why one clock should show more elapsed time than the other. If we say there is a difference we must logically ask why. Even if we consider a middle observer as both rockets meet, their clocks must show the same time, since both rockets are moving at the same speed. In the case of relativistic effects, their clocks must slow equally in comparison with his own. So, let clocks of both rocket show 10 hours of elapsed time of their uniform motion at the moment of their meeting.
