Stellar Neighborhoods

milky way galaxy

Earth and Luratia and their place in the Milky Way galaxy.

Our space geographers have been mapping the local universe for almost 100 years with holographic videobots capable of traversing long distances at near lightspeed.

Working together with planetary scientists, our space geographers are mapping the local universe into zones, regions, and stellar neighborhoods. They have identified over 300 planets believed to be inhabited with intelligent life.

Luratia and Earth are not far from each other. The distance between us is 380 light years.

One light year is roughly 6 trillion miles, which means that we are 2,204 trillion miles / 3,595 trillion km apart. Although that distance may seem astounding, we are — in astronomical terms — very, very close to one another. That makes us stellar neighbors and cosmic siblings.
