Light Rays in a Moving Passenger CarNovember 10 2017 at 12:20 AM
A passenger car is standing. From the same height of the front and the rear inner walls each, a light ray is being sent downward at a 5 degree. At the center of the car, a tiny sensor is set. The sensor responds to two rays and the third light source is lighting. Now, the other passenger car is passing by. From this passenger car, the third light will be visible also. Regardless of its speed.
Above picture will show that almost all the similar pictures (Light Rays in a Moving Passenger Car) in books are wrong. Only the emission theory will be possible to explain these.
In outer space, a mirror is reflecting a star light. It is evident that propagation of reflected light and incident light is different (reflected light follows the emission theory).

On following pictures that show light rays in a moving passenger car, the formula of Lorentz contraction will be invalid.
1) From a light source set on the rear inner wall, a light ray (slanted downward at a 5 degrees) is being sent to a mirror on the front wall. Light path draws oblique sides of isosceles triangle.
2) In above picture, the light source is somewhat apart from the rear inner wall. Light path does not draw isosceles triangle.
3) Two light sources each set on the rear wall and the front wall is sending a light ray to the facing wall. Light path each is one way.
