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
