Einstein’s fame can, to some extent, be ascribed to the fact that he originated a theory which, though contrary to common sense, was in remarkable agreement the experimental data. Ron Hatch claims there is increasingly precise data which contradicts the theory. But he does not stop there. He offers an alternative – an ether gauge
theory, which offers an unparalleled, common-sense explanation of the experimental data. The new theory is distinguished by:

  • a return to time simultaneity, even though clocks (mechanical and biological) can run at different rates
  • the replacement of the Lorentz transformations with gauge transformations (scaled Galilean transformations)
  • a unification of the electromagnetic and gravitational forces
  • a clear explanation of the source of inertia
  • a clear and consistent explanation of the physics underlying the equivalence principle

In addition to the above, a comprehensive review of the experimental record shows that the new ether guage theory agrees with experiment better than the special theory. This releases everyone from the necessity of accepting a nonsensical theory which denies the common, ordinary sense of elapsed time. Rather than curved space, the ether guage theory postulates an elastic ether. This results in relatively minor modifications to the general theory mathematics – but with significant interpretational differences. – From the endpiece.


Ronald Ray Hatch, born in Freedom, Oklahoma, now of Wilmington, California, received his Bachelor of Science degree in physics and math in 1962 from Seattle Pacific University. He worked at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, Boeing and Magnavox as Principle Scientist, before becoming a Global Positioning System (GPS) consultant. In 1994 he joined Jim Litton, K. T. Woo, and Jalal Alisobhani in starting what is now NavCom Technology, Inc. He has served a number of roles within the Institute of Navigation (ION), including Chair of the Satellite Division, President and Fellow. Hatch received the Johannes Kepler Award from the Satellite Division and the Colonel Thomas Thurlow Award from the ION. He has been awarded twelve patents either as inventor or co-inventor, most of which relate to GPS, about which he is one of the world’s premier specialists. He is well known for his work in navigation and surveying via satellite.

In a pair of articles, Hatch shows how GPS data provides evidence against, not for, both special and general relativity: „Relativity and GPS,“ parts I and II, Galilean Electrodynamics, V6, N3 (1995), pp. 51-57; and V6, N4 (1995), pp. 73-78. In his 1992 book, Escape From Einstein, Hatch presents data contradicting the special theory of relativity, and promotes a Lorentzian alternative described as an ether gauge theory.
