Back on Earth, how is science going? Science is still slowly getting beaten-back-into-shape. Science Broken: Replication Crisis Widens -1st psychology/nutrition/medicine, next climate?

How about what the humans are putting into their bodies?

Hmm …
Environmentalists bad for the environment Environmentalists keep changing thier minds on what is good for the environment
