Over the last couple days, Dave Cameron has submitted what he considers to be the most reasonably constructed rosters for both the American League and National League‘s All-Star teams, respectively. What follows is the author’s own version of that same exercise — except for actual stars in the universe.
Here are the author’s choices for the All-Star Star team, by luminosity classification:
Actually a double-star system, both giants. Along with c and Theta, forms sword in Orion’s belt. Brightest of those three stars.
Has played considerable role in numerous works of fiction — largely based on possibility of supporting life. Has nearly fused its core hydrogen into helium, meaning will depart from subgiant class sooner than later.
Dwarf: The Sun
King of the main-sequence stars, itself a challenging classification. Supports ton of life. Dangerous to Irish people.
White Dwarf: 40 Eridani B
Discovered in 1783 by William Herschel, is oldest known white dwarf. Still easiest white dwarf to observe. Companion star 40 Eridani A is candidate to support life.
