Well, I am
- except I ditched Gliese3 completely and replaced it with Hipparcos because Gliese was so inaccurate by comparison. I believe you're already familiar with my Stellar Mapping page
, LiNeNoiSE? That's what this new map is made from - it's the Extended Hipparcos data with the RECONS, DENSE, and CTIOPI catalogues (you can grab them from my website), and some stuff from recent WISE papers by Dupuy & Liu (2012), Bihain et al (2013), Kirkpatrick et al (2011 and 2012), Marsh et al (2013), and Luhman (2013) which I haven't added to the website yet. The LDwarf catalogue from my site was in there but it's been completely superseded by the WISE stuff.
7.7 parsecs is a huge distance though - you'd have to radically expand the human sphere for it to be a limit, or you've pretty much removed that as a limitation and don't have Arms at all since every star in 2300AD is accessible from everywhere else.
Welcome aboard, BTW!
