The Aether Physics Model was formulated by David W. Thomson III. His background in physics is largely self taught as a result of logic disagreements with former science teachers. In Thomson's view, all physics should lend themselves to common sense and avoid the nonsense-speak prevalent in mainstream physics circles.
With his attitude bent on remaining in the world of common sense, Thomson systematically investigated the relationships of known physical constants and studied the writings of the scientists who provided with our present physics understanding. He further began testing his ideas in a crude home "lab." After finding convincing evidence for some important errors in mainstream physics concepts, he began reassembling provable physics knowledge, beginning with the most elementary levels.
Immediately after first publishing his ideas, he discovered the physics establishment is overrun with irrational academics who are more insistent on keeping the foundations of their education in place than on actual scientific progress. While in London, UK to present his theory at the PIRT 2006 conference at Imperial College, Stephen Weinberg, the noted physicist who received a Nobel Prize for his so-called "Electroweak" theory, attended with no other intention than to reschedule Thomson's speaking engagement for just after lunch and then inviting the whole conference to a lunch that extended into Thomson's speaking time.
Realizing from firsthand experience how money and the politics of science controlled the scientific establishment, Thomson regrouped and stepped out of the limelight to build a better laboratory, which is equipped with video facilities. His strategy is now to bypass the scientific establishment altogether and go straight to the public through media channels. Basically, his strategy has turned to crowd sourcing and to dissolve the intense academic arrogance that impedes the progress of human-kind, not only in physics, but in all areas of life.
