Watching Science

I watched The Elegant Universe with Michele. As we sat there — watching Brian Greene walk through the stories of Newton, Maxwell and Einstein — Michele wondered out loud why teaching science seems to be the same as teaching the history of science. Are gravity waves so weird that we cannot introduce them without going through the (bogus) tale of Newtwon and the apple? How much harm is caused by teaching things that are known to be wrong?
