Michelson-Morley experiment disprove rotating globe

On a rapidly revolving earth combined with the movement of the earth around the sun, we can understand that with a correctly executed experiment that it would have proven movement. We turn around the axis on the equator at a speed of 6371*2*pi/(24*60*60) = 463 m/s. Next to that we revolve around the Sun at a speed of 150.000.000*2*pi/(365*24*60*60) = 29,885 km/s. This would mean a total moment of 29,885+0,463 = 30,348 km/s. We all understand that it is a tremendous high speed, which actually should be noticeable or measurable. For this is the Michelson-Morley experiment (1887) thought of. How does this experiment work and did it actually fail?

Principle of Michelson-Morley experiment

It you shine a light or laser at a mirror splitting the light, so that one beam goes with the movement of the earth and one beam on a ninety degree angle to the north, then due to the movement of the earth the first beam will be slowed down. When mirrored back the first beam will reach the detector before the second beam. The result can then be translated into a speed difference of roughly 30 km/s.

Some calculations

For instance if the mirrors are 100 km north and east of the detector/ laser, then to the north the beam travels 2*100 km / 300.000 km/s = 6,6666667*10^-4 seconds. But if the beam goes east, then it will be slowed down by the movement. So as it travels to the mirror it is slowed down by the mirror so that 100 km / (300.000-30.000) km/s = 3,703703704*10^-4 seconds. But after it is mirrored the movement is in favour of the beam so that 100 km / (300.000+30.000) km/s = 3,03030303*10^-4 seconds. Difference would be 3,703703704+3,03030303-6,6666667 = 0,067340064*10^-4 seconds. But in the mean time the earth has moved also, so we need to iterate, which I will do here only once as an example. In 3,703703704*10^-4 s the earth moves (times 30,348 km) 0,01124 km, so that 100,01124 /  (300.000-30.000) km/s = 3,70412*10^-4 seconds. But The detector will have moved also so 3,70412+3,030303 = 6,7344*10^-4 seconds * 30,348 = 0,020437626 km. This results in 99,9795 km / (300.000+30.000) = 3,029683708*10^-4 seconds and results in a total time of 6,7338037*10^-4 seconds. This results in a difference of 0,06713700828*10^-4 seconds. If this would be measured then it would suggest earth movement.

Failed experiment or not?

The Michelson-Morley experiment showed that the earth would have a movement of around 4-8 km/s. This was 40 times less then expected on a moving earth, resulting in a null-test. This means that the assumed movement was not there, or was much less. This experiment is called by the established scientific community a big failed experiment. None the less, after this experiment similar experiments have been done also resulting in a null-test. Joos (1930) resulted in 1,5 km/s (375) times less then what expected) and Trimmer et.al. 2,5-3,8 cm/s (1973). So the question here for sure is, have all these experiments failed or can the null-result simply be explained due to a flat earth or motionless plane. I would suggest that all these null-test experiments like Michelson-Morley (1887) actually disprove a rapidly revolving globe earth.

746 and Sun enters Cancer

Somehow the system wants to show the number 746 aka 21-06-2018. It is the day the Sun enters Cancer.  777 is 22-07-2018 aka is my birthday....
