Re: [nbos] Stellar Radius - Mass - Luminosity Parameters."Dalton Calford" Fri Feb 22nd, 2008
I may begin by posting the stellar values that I have as a base point.
Alot of the information has been extrapulated from Traveller book 6
Scouts, so it needs a good peer review.
I will wait to see what Ed thinks of the project before I start
clutering up his wiki space.
