An alternative theory being analogous to Einstein’s special theory of relativity is presented. While Einstein based his theory on the relativity principle of motion and constancy of the velocity of light, this theory assumes an absolute frame of reference
and a general length contraction. Both concepts are taken from general relativity and applied to an asymptotically flat space. This results in a transformation group being different from the Lorentz transformation and a Eucledian addition theorem of velocitites. The results are in accordance with experiments and long known discrepancies between special relativity and experimental findings are resolved as well as paradoxa being introduced by Einstein’s original theory. Physical facts being unintelligible before can be interpreted in the light of the alternative theory.
