Experiments on searching the space flows of luminiferous
medium through Sagnac interferometer have been conducted. To do this, in one of
the interferometer arms the inhomogeneity has been introduced in the form of a
transparent tube with distilled water. The difference in speeds of the
interferometer was registered in relation to the medium when changing the tube
orientation from S-N to W-E: By shifting the interference fringe on the screen.
Measurements were carried out in two places: 30.2 East longitude/60.5 North
latitude at a height of 165 m above sea level; 41.3 East longitude/43.6 North
latitude at height 2850 m. Flows with speeds > 45 m/s were not observed. The
result is explained by entrainment of the medium due to gravitational attraction
to the Earth, the Sun and Center of the Milky Way: Similar to how it happens to
other physical medium.
