  • A comprehensive census of the stellar content of the OB associations within 1 kpc from the Sun is presented, based on Hipparcos positions, proper motions, and parallaxes. It is a key part of a long-term project to study the formation, structure, and evolution of nearby young stellar groups and related star-forming regions. OB associations are unbound moving groups, which can be detected kinematically because of their small internal velocity dispersion. The nearby associations have a large… CONTINUE READING
