“Many years ago I called the Laplace–Gaussian curve the normal curve, which name, while it avoids an international question of priority, has the disadvantage of leading people to believe that all other distributions of frequency are in one sense or another ‘abnormal’. That belief is, of course, not justifiable. It has led many writers to try and force all frequency by aid of one or another process of distortion into a ’normal’ curve.”

11Gauss, C. F. (1823). Theoria combinationis observationum erroribus minimis obnoxiae. Number V. 2 in Commentationes Societatis Regiae Scientiarum Gottingensis recentiores: Classis Mathemat. H. Dieterich 12Pearson, K. (1920). Notes on the history of correlation. Biometrika 13(1), 25–45 We mentioned that Gauss used the normal distribution to model errors in astronomy. We can motivate our discussion with a StarTrek example: Consider the use of kellicams or qellqams by the Klingon empire to measure distance.

Space is still the final frontier.
