CELESTIAL NOTE: DELTA PAVONIS is a YELLOW-ORANGE STAR and is older than our SUN, but is very similar to it. YELLOW STARS are one of the main targets in the the search of EARTH-LIKE PLANETS and life.

 

IMAGE #4 = STAR SYSTEMS WITHIN 20 LIGHT-YEARS: There are a total of 83 known star systems within this distance containing 109 stars and 8 brown dwarfs. This is a negative version of this map, which might be easier to print.

"DUNE: A Whisper of CALADAN SEAS" is a short story and rehash of the Brian Herbert novel "The ROAD to DUNE." CALADAN, is the third planet of DELTA PAVONIS where the surface of the planet is predominantly covered with water. In the novel, Planet CALADAN is a sea-covered ancestral homeworld. The desert planet ARRAKIS is pictured here BELOW.

NOTE: In the SUN's immediate neighborhood, there's about one (1) star for every 280 cubic light-years. So there should be about ...

1,875 stars within 50 light-years
15,000 stars within 100 light-years
1,875,000 stars within 500 light-years

 

LOCAL GALACTIC NEIGHBORHOOD: DELTA PAVONIS has been identified by Maggie Turnbull and Jill Tarter of the SETI Institute as the "Best SETI target" in a survey of nearby stars. DELTA PAVONIS is the nearest SUN-LIKE STAR that is NOT a member of a binary or multiple star system.
The distances between stars are ENORMOUS. The distance from the SUN to PROXIMA CENTAURI is 4.22 light-years which is equal to 40,000,000,000,000 kilometres. Our fastest space probes would take 60,000 years to travel this distance.
