Description :
Revised census of the 10 parsecs sample. The catalogue contains 540 stars, brown dwarfs, and exoplanets in 339 systems, within 10 pc from the Sun. This list is as volume-complete as possible from current knowledge and it provides benchmark stars that can be used, for instance, to define calibration samples and to test the quality of the forthcoming Gaia releases. It also has a strong outreach potential.
Discipline :
astronomy & astrophysics (sciences of the universe)
