In that case, so were Newton's Laws. After all, they were later found not to cover everything

Actually Newton's laws (while not universal) are usually valid when not referring to things moving at relativistic speeds (near the speed of light) or not near extreme gravity sources (i.e. blackholes, neutron stars).

They are good enough for intrastella spaceflight and finding planets long before they could be seen by any people (on Earth).
