The Michelson-Morley Experiment 

  In 1887, an exquisitely designed measurement of the earth's
  motion through the ether results in the most brilliant
  failure in scientific history.

  The Pound-Rebka experiment is a well known experiment to
  test Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity. It is
  considered to be the experiment that ushered in an era of
  precision tests of general relativity.
