Aquino has an interesting take on the Michelson-Morley experiment. He uses QM to postulate the existence of quantum masses which fill space, each 3.9x10^-73 kg. He calls it the Universal Quantum Fluid. Since the observable universe has a mass of 10^53 kg and a volume of 10^79 cubic meters there are about 10^125 of these particles with an average diameter of 10^-15 m.
 
If light is to impart a detectable change in the momentum of one of these particles, then according to the uncertainty principle it must have a wavelength less than 10^-14 m (gamma). That isn't practicable, even today; Michelson, using visible light at around 5x10^-7 m, never had a chance.

Aquino then goes on to show a rather drastic modification of Michelson's experiment involving mercury plasma excited with low frequency AC which theoretically would make visible the expected interference bands.
 
No mention of the Doppler Effect, though.
