Can we get a Map of the immediate surrounding star systems (from earth, sphering out to Gleesa 581) as a screen saver.....or stellar chart...from the data so far crunched?
Some of us can use it to study the near cosmos and learn more about our corner of the galaxy. Who knows, we can even initiate some formulas for future travel....
Just wondering, because it IS a pretty large galaxy we live in, and maybe 1000 years from now, this project may be looked at as the old parchment maps of sea wayfarers. Who knows, you may even trigger curious minds to WANT to fly to the next star system just by providing something as useful as that.
