Following an historical review of the concept of the aether, it will be shown that the Cosmic Neutrino Background (CNB) shares many of its characteristics. Formed in the first seconds of the big bang, the CNB is a dark, invisible candidate for the seat of electromagnetic phenomena. Like the Cosmic Microwave Background, the CNB can provide a universal rest frame and, at a temperature of 1.95 K⁰, the CNB forms a frictionless superfluid that permeates space.
