The theory of reference frames is a new theory of relativity that represents the scientific evolution of Einstein's relativity. In this essay the following points are examined: considerations about the theory of relativity of Albert Einstein, general notes on the theory of reference frames, the Michelson‐Morley experiment, the new equations of space‐time transformation, the kinematic principles of the theory of reference frames, the transformations of Maxwell's equations for inertial systems, the Doppler effect, and the mystery of supernovas. The new theory responds to numerous and recent experimental results that are not confirmed by previous theories. In particular, the interpretation of the luminous phenomenon that causes supernovas is at variance with theoretical predictions of Einstein's relativity but is in accordance with those of the theory of reference frames. The most important theoretical concept in this essay is the inertial time, which is a common time valid for all inertial reference frames that replaces Newtonian‐Galilean absolute time and Einstein's relativistic time.
