Hi Neville,

I  think the aether exists for the simple reason that nothing much in
physics makes sense without it. Whether it is frictionless or not is one of
the things which we would need to know, but not the only thing. How do its
properties vary with distance from the earth?  Since the speed of light
depends on its properties and since probably other (possibly all) "physical
constants" depend on it too we are not in a position to say much at all
about the universe without such knowledge.  The proud statements of the
astronomers are all based on the assumption that the earth is nothing
special, and the "laws of physics" as determined in laboratories on earth
must be the same everywhere else. A veritable house of cards.
