Ritz postulated that all action and light proceed with velocity c with respect to the moving source. A review of the evidence against this Ritz theory is presented here. The variability of distant stellar sources, such as Cepheid variables and pulsars, could not be observed if Ritz were right.
Keywords: light, velocity c relative to source, Ritz, ballistic theory
