Well, as “local” as you can be to a loose conglomeration of asteroid-bound city states, corporate flotillas, space stations, and general miscreants, anyway. Certainly more local than Earth, which is some 2 or 3 AU from here. Which is pretty far. I know, sounds small, but go look it up. It’s really far.

The astronomical unit is probably my favorite unit of measurement. (That I have a favorite unit of measurement probably says a lot about me, none of it good.) I really enjoy it’s reasoned arbitrariness. “We need a way to measure shit in space. Uh, fuck it, let’s say from here to the Sun is 1 unit of spaceness.” It’s decisions like this that truly solidify your place as the dominant species of a planet.
