    At the time, many scientists and laymen believed that the continents did indeed move, but to mention it in a scientific paper…even hint at it…was career death.

    I see no reason to believe the NYT when it says that “most astronomers” agreed there was vegetation on Mars. The second story, about continental drift, admittedly reports the opinion of only one man.

    I was fortunate to know Dr. Kenneth Caster of the University of Cincinnati. He died in the 1990’s and was recognized by Europeans as a pioneer on the proof of continental drift. I don’t know when he stated and published that. Guess I should research it.
