M-M did find that the speed of light was independent of direction. 
If there were an aether, and light propagated through it as a wave,  
and since the earth would be moving through the ether, then light should travel 
different speeds in different directions. 

But it didn't. So either there's no ether, or light has a  
fixed velocity. Same physical result, so take your pick  
of interpretations.
