BUG (Minor) Star data error.
« on: January 29, 2016, 02:32:05 PM »
Following info provided for Antares:
Type: Blue White Main-sequence Star
Spectral Type: B2.5V
Mass 12.4 Sun
Radius: 4.11 AU.

Correct data should be:
Type:  2nd Ascent Red Supergiant Star (asymtotic branch)
Spectral Type:  M1.5Iab
Mass: 12.4 Sun
Radius: 4.11 AU (883 Solar)

Type:  Blue White Main-Sequence Star
Spectral Type: B2.5V
Mass: 7.2 Sun
Radius 5.2 Solar

It seems that your entry inadvertently mixed the stellar information for this binary.  In addition, the data for Antaries B has been entirely omitted.
