We are often asked about the name Aether, its pronunciation and how it came about.
According to ancient science; aether (Greek αἰθήρ aithēr), also spelled æther or ether, is the material that fills the region of the Universe above the terrestrial sphere.
In Greek mythology, Aether is one of the Protegenoi; the first born elemental gods. He is the personification of the upper sky, space and heaven, and is the elemental god of the “Bright Glowing, Upper Air.” He is the pure upper air that the gods breathe, as opposed to the normal air mortals breathe.
Even as late as the 19th Century it was still believed that light was propagated in the medium called the “luminiferous Aether.” This theory continued until it was replaced by the theory of relativity and quantum physics.
