[The february 1996 Beta-test version of]
CHVIEW is intended as a three-dimensional aid to viewing some of the
nearer stars of our galaxy; navigating the distances and gravity
"gradients" between them; accessing basic information (and updating
what we know); and, hopefully, having some fun. The current data file
provides over 7,700 stars believed to lie within 250 light-years (ly)
of Earth, in a 500-ly diameter sphere. Future plans include modules
for selecting a star (or multiple star system) and, based on available
data and known astronomical relationships, for creating your own star
system (of planets, moons, asteroids, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud/cometary
halo, and even human colonies or space communities), for voyaging in
faster-than-light (FTL) "starships", and the like. See the chview.doc
file on the Methane
Side of Meetpoint.
