At present, it is believed that the Special Theory of Relativity (STR) is the only theory explaining the Michelson-Morley and Kennedy-Thorndike experiments. This article proved that another theory in accordance with these experiments is possible. In this article, we derive the new theory of kinematics of bodies from the universal frame of reference (UFR, ether), which we called the Special Theory of Ether (STE). The article explains why Michelson-Morley and Kennedy-Thorndike experiments could not detect the universal frame of reference. In article, a different transformation of time and position than the Lorentz transformation is derived on the basis of the geometric analysis of the Michelson-Morley and Kennedy-Thorndike experiments. The formula for summation of speeds for absolute speed has been derived. Based on the derived transformation, we derive the formula for the velocity of light in vacuum measured in any inertial reference system. The entire article contains only original research conducted by its authors.
