      So, maybe the Michelson-Morley experiments just weren't accurate enough?

      First few paragraphs
      A currently popular idea is that many universes exist, each having its own
      set of physical laws. A 2011 study suggests that even a slight change in
      the laws of nature means they weren't ‘set in stone' when our Universe was
      born. The laws of nature we see may depend on our ‘space-time address' -
      -when and where you happen to live in the Universe.

      Analysis of the light from distant quasars from data from the Very Large
      Telescope (VLT) in Chile to shows that one of the constants of nature
      appears to be different in different parts of the cosmos, supporting the theory
      that our solar system is an area of the Universe that is "just right" for
      life, which negates Einstein's equivalence principle, which states that the
      laws of physics are the same everywhere.
      The change in the constant appears to have an orientation, creating a
      "preferred direction", or axis, across the cosmos, an idea that was dismissed
      more than 100 years ago with the creation of Einstein's special theory of
      A 2011 report described how the "magic number" known as the fine-structure
      constant –- dubbed alpha for short –- appears to vary throughout the
      Universe, according to a team from the University of New South Wales, Swinburne
      University of Technology and the University of Cambridge. "This finding was
      a real surprise to everyone," said John Webb of the University of New
      South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
      “After measuring alpha in around 300 distant galaxies, a consistency
      emerged: this magic number, which tells us the strength of electromagnetism, is
      not the same everywhere as it is here on Earth, and seems to vary
      continuously along a preferred axis through the Universe,” said Webb."
