New Data

New observations are continuous; some disconfirm prior hypotheses--which is a net increase in knowledge--and others confirm prior hypotheses, also a net increase in knowledge. No experiment is a 'failure' if one has the wits to learn from it.

Below, a diagram from a 1985 book ("Interstellar Migration and the Human Experience) in which something was proposed that, today, is largely confirmed by new observations.

Signing, after months of back-and-forth, contract with Springer Science for my own space migration book; my coauthor and I will be guided by 'Interstellar Migration', but we'll be updating a great deal, and casting space migration in a new light; that of adaptation.

Tonight on Larry King: An interstellar evening with Steven Hawking!
