There are history programmes on FNN (in favour of the fairy royals to nobody’s surprise). Everybody responsible for history programming takes the official line. Eileen is the nearest to a revisionist and even she takes most things as gospel. The Witch always disputed the truth of anything broadcast on FNN as she feels her family was unfairly portrayed and treated. She has a point but sadly her family were mass murderers and rebels so the fairy royals were right to defend their people against them.
What Eileen queries is whether the royals could’ve intervened sooner, acted more fairly, preventing the need for a forceful defence. Eileen’s queries are not welcome. The only reason anybody knows about Eileen's queries is that Eileen has a loud mouth and she is not the type to be silenced. (The Queen is also aware that ignoring Eileen on this will aggravate her cousin but it's easier to live with an annoyed relative than answer said annoyed relative's awkward questions).
The sciences as we know them are of little interest in a magical world. Alchemy is despised. The nearest science studied is natural history and that’s only done by the likes of Fresdian (Rose) who’s considered an eccentric. There’s a wariness of science as practiced on earth as the Queen and her Council are aware it is science that leads to mankind making new discoveries, some of which the magical realm don’t want them to find out as it could lead to humans finding their world.
Every so often humans are “enabled” to find, say, a new planet so they’re busy investigating that if the magical worlds thinks humans are getting too close. Accurate measurements are a must for the potion makers. And there is an awareness of the need for a great deal of distance when casting an explosive charm between the caster and the being/thing it’s aimed at. But that’s more common sense that mathematics or the acceptance of every action causes an equal and opposite reaction.
