# Validity of Maxwell's equations in the aether's reference frame

If Maxwell's equations were experimentally found on Earth such as Faradays law, coulombs law , and worked in the Earth's frame of reference, then why did people believe them to be valid in the aether's reference frame?

• Maxwell equations were derived not experimentally but theoretically, in the reference frame of the aether. Mar 2 at 11:58
• Ohh, Ok I see. The basic laws constituting Maxwells equations are experimental ex Faraday law Mar 2 at 15:49
• Not only. Maxwell went quite far in generalizing these facts:-) Mar 2 at 22:13
