Actually it never went away. The so-called "invariant speed of light" is a misconception of the Michelson Morley experiment, Lorentz and Einstein. The MM Exp was fatally flawed, and could not detect the aether if it does exist. Because the MM Exp uses a 180-degree folded path, the wavelength compression on one leg is exactly compensated for by the wavelength extension on the other path, thereby holding the indication at the fringes detector steady. Transition Time, as applied to the boat analogy, does not apply to wavetrains.

If the MM exp setup is accelerated, the compensation is still automatic. But if the light path is one way, then the variance shows up immediately as Doppler shift. In actual fact tho' the light speed is constant in the aether.

The experiments by Michelson-Gale, Hoek, Fizeau and Sagnac all have the same 180-degree fatal flaw.

One can see that the aether must exist, because things like the radial containment of a beam of light requires a taut-elastic continuous aether fabric. And Ek proportional to v-squared is easily explained by aether displacement, but not at all by Relativity.
