Caption

Albert Abraham Michelson (1852-1931), US physicist known for his measurements of the speed of light. Born in Poland, Michelson emigrated to the US with his parents at the age of two. His most famous experiment was done in collaboration with Edward Morley. The 1897 Michelson-Morley experiment used interferometry in a failed attempt to find changes in the speed of light relative to a moving Earth. The result supported Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity (1905). Michelson won the 1907 Nobel Prize for Physics. Photographed around the 1920s.
