On the Probable Cause of the Discrepancies between Hipparcos and VLBI Pleiades Distance Measurements
Author(s) Ernst Karl Kunst
ABSTRACT
It will show, a recent extension of special relativity on the grounds of a novel concept of velocity, which also predicts the speed of transversal motions on the plane of the sky to increase with enduring observation time, to fully explain the differences of the observational results of the former experiments referring to the distance of the Pleiades from Earth.
