However, the science behind the article appears, to this unlearned eye, to be well documented. so perhaps you might find this a "useful account". http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/2/4/e1501693.full
If the article is hog wash i would appreciate any comments that might enlighten me so that i might not be so easily fooled in the future.
Sometimes we have to worry that humor doesn't work here. So before anyone goes ballistic on this one, please bear in mind that Philip Lange is surely kidding about changing the Polaris correction tables. :)
By the way, the general media coverage on this particular story is "Internet viral" nonsense --just incredibly poor. Good luck finding any useful account of it.
