For the enlightenment of the blind, here is an extract.
Also after 1915 Einstein reintroduced the fallacious ether rejected by the experiment of Michelson and Morley in 1887 in favor of Newton’s corpuscles moving in vacuum at the speed of light. For example in 1924 Einstein wrote: “According to special relativity, the ether remains still absolute because its influence on the inertia of bodies…is independent of every kind of physical influence.” Of course under his massless quanta of fields in 1915 Einstein abandoned the fundamental action at a distance of Newton’s third law and proposed a set of postulations like the “Ether structure” and the wrong gravitational waves
. Note that in 1935 the experiments of the Quantum Entanglement
rejected Einstein’s gravitational waves. However Einstein did not accept such experiments confirming Newton’s action at a distance and called it SPOOKY ACTION AT A DISTANE
. Nevertheless in his paper of 1936 he denounced the gravitational waves. Also he did not like the gravitational properties of light confirmed by Soldner and introduced the invalid curvature of space which should be thought to be responsible for the bending of light.
However much more later(1938) Einstein himself abandoned his previous idea of curvature of space and recognized that photons have mass affected by the gravity in accordance with Galileo’s curved trajectory. For example in Einstein’s book “The Evolution of Physics
” (page 234) we read: “A beam of light carries energy and energy has mass. But every inertial mass is attracted by the gravitational field, as inertial and gravitational masses are equivalent. A beam of light will bend in a gravitational field exactly as a body would if thrown horizontally with a velocity equal to that of light”. ...."
