They have trouble determining the parallax of Deneb, which is assumed to be only around 1,500 ly away. How do they expect to resolve the distance of
stars 100 000 ly away?? Hipparcos itself gave weird data about the Pleiades' exact distance, even though this star cluster is only 450 ly away (more
or less). I can tell you guys that the Galaxy is far larger than that!
And how do they hope to resolve the Core view problem? Until now, a small but significant portion of the Galaxy is blocked from our view by the Core.
To see stars behind the Core we would need to send probes thousands of ly away from Earth.
Thanks for the info though. S&F!
