Then you have to question the constancy of the lightspeed and even the Fitzgerald contraction descibed by John Bell in "How to teach special relativity"
It was Abdus Salam who proposed that quarks and leptons should have a sub-quantum level structure, and that they are compound hardrock particles with a specific non-zero sized form.
Jean Paul Vigier postulated that quarks and leptons are "pushed around" by an energetic sea of vacuum particles.
David Bohm suggested in contrast with The "Copenhagen interpretation", that reality is not created by the eye of the human observer, and second: elementary particles should be "guided
by a pilot wave".
John Bell argued that the motion of mass related to the surrounding vacuum reference frame, should originate real
"Lorentz-transformations", and also real relativistic measurable contraction.
Richard Feynman postulated the idea of an all pervading energetic quantum vacuum.
He rejected it, because it should originate resistance for every mass in motion, relative to the reference frame of the quantum vacuum.
However, I postulate the strange and counter intuitive possibility, that this resistance for mass in motion, can be compensated, if we combine the ideas of Vigier, Bell, Bohm and Salam, and
a new dual universal Bohmian "pilot wave", which is interpreted as the EPR correlation (or Big Bang entanglement) between individual elementary anti-mirror particles, living in dual
The O‘Connell Effect in Eclipsing Binaries Explained by Mass Related Light Speed Extinction Distances (Lasof) of Stars and Even Planets.
If the orbits of close binary stars are circular, and the light speed is NOT influenced by the speed of the stars, we have to expect that the light curves are symmetrical between moments
of eclipse or even conjunction.
However, This is mostly not the case and still an ongoing debate in astronomy and called the “O ‘Connell effect”.
According to Quantum FFF Theory, however I assume that the local light speed around the stars is gravity related for a mass related distance from the source (star) called LASOF
ellipsoid, (Local Asymmetrical Oscillating vacuum Frame)
As a result the so called O ‘Connell effect can easily be explained as a logic result of additional redshift or blueshift by the local lightspeed variation.
At the same time also planets should show such lightspeed extinction effects, which is already measured but not understood by I.I.Shapiro (see “radar astronomy” edition by Evans and
