I just read it a couple of minutes ago. It seems the authors use the
hydrogen line a lot for RA, which is one of the few ways to pierce the Milky
Way's curtain over about 20 percent of the cosmos. There are some tremendous
pictures. I especially like the views of our galaxy.
Not that it will help project Argus much, since we can hear about 200 Light
Years, and the milky way is about 100,000 Light Years across.
