As best as I can tell, the glass-is-a-liquid story is bunk.

I was going to ask if anybody had tried to measure it.  That seems like something a time-nut would know about.

The astronomers have been running tests for years.  Their mirrors don't seem to sag enough to notice, and they are very good at noticing tiny distortions.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
