I also believe that the ether is not dead. It has reemerged as zero-
point vacuum fluctuations which occur anyplace anytime (see e.g. So if we 
consider space as something light propagates through, it's fair to 
consider it some kind of medium possessing its own properties. 

As to the string theory and its successor, M-theory, let's not rush 
to invoke them as a proof of anything. They remain highly speculative 
and are themselves in a dire need of proof.
