Muon, Special Relativity, Time Dilation
The cosmic ray muon decay in the upper atmosphere is claimed by relativists to be an evidence of the relativistic time dilation. They consider it as a reliable experimental proof of the special relativity. This paper reveals the unviability of this claim, using an analytical approach. The time and space intervals between the events of the muons formation and their arrival to the Earth surface are analyzed by the means of the Lorentz transformation. Contradictory findings are obtained.
