A luminous paragraph appears on page 172, where Michelson is quoted as considering the Universe a continuum in which "all the phenomena... are only different manifestations of the various modes of motion of one all-pervading substance".
As a matter of fact, he resurrected the ether in his latests conferences, after having to seem resigned to its death.

An inventor and an experimental scientist Michelson brought

There is no need to streamline a spacecraft in a perfect vacuum...

A box or a sphere will do as well.
