Subject: "Hard Science"? Reality check.

Date sent:  20-FEB-1997 13:23:18 

Some people like to use the words "hard science". Yet, in order for a 
paper in life sciences to be published it has to be relevant, novel, and 
add knowledge to to the scientific field. The normal procedure in a lab 
is to repeat an experiment three times successfully. NOT SEQUENTIALLY. One 
could have many failures in between. Thus Visser's work may still be 
published. Do not through the baby out with the water.

Chamberlain's observation on their video tape can be interpreted in more 
than one way:

1) The heart was partly frozen and partly virtrified. (non opaque area)
2) The heart was partly frozen and partly not frozen.

If number one turns to be out true then she succeeded partly.
