What is the connection?

What's the connection? Sagnac in 1913 essentially disproved SR. He had no restriction on the time at which he conducted tests, detecting only a rotational velocity difference between the earth and the ether, not a translational motion, while Michelson-Gale in 1925 verified the Sidereal difference in rotational velocity, probably taking measurements every 12 hours.
Up, Up and Away
