 61 Ursae Majoris
As 61 Ursae Majoris has become one of the top 100 target stars for NASA's planned Terrestrial Planet Finder (TPF), images of this star and its position relative to the Milky Way in Earth's night sky are now available from the TPF-C team.
61 Ursae Majoris is a yellow-orange main sequence dwarf star of spectral and luminosity type G8 Ve, with about 81 percent of Sol's mass, 84 to 89 percent of its diameter (Morossi and Malagnini, 1985, page 369; and Johnson and Wright, 1983, page 673), and around 57 percent of its luminosity.
While chromospheric activity measurements suggest that the star may be as young as 500 million years (see HD 101501 in Table 2 from Don Barry, 1988), the lack of an easily observable dust disk -- as is found at Epsilon Eridani -- suggests that the stars could be well over a billion years old.

 61 Cygni 2
61 Cygni was christened the "Flying Star" in 1792 by Giuseppe Piazzi (1746-1826) for its unusually large proper motion.
61 Cygni was the first star system (other than the Sun) to have its distance to Earth successfully calculated by Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel (1784-1846) using trigonometric parallax and the diameter of the Earth's orbit around the Sun in 1838.
Accounting for infrared heating, the distance from 61 Cygni B where an Earth-type planet would be "comfortable" with liquid water is centered around only 0.34 AU -- about half of Mercury's orbital distance in the Solar System.

Aside from the acting (brilliant) and a story that sweeps you to your feet like an avid, life-long fan, "61" has a deeper meaning than all the greed that is aspired to in sports today.
Billy Crystal, better known as a comedian or as host of the Academy Awards, took the director's chair for this film, and produced a story that was a grand insight into the personal and professional world of baseball during the era of Mantle and Maris.
This is embodied in the asterisk that followed the number 61 in record books (and the title of this film) - Ruth's season was several games shorter, and it was deemed 'unfair' for Maris to take the record, having not hit the same number of runs in the same number of games.

 Salon.com Arts & Entertainment | "61*"
"61*," about the 1961 home run race between Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, isn't quite as good as I think it is. You should probably know that before reading any further.
Besieged by an unwanted press and berated by fans as unworthy of comparison with Ruth and Mantle, Maris took to smoking six packs of cigarettes a day -- he would die of cancer at 51 -- and his hair fell out in clumps.
Maybe you had to have been there to really appreciate "61*." On the other hand, "61*" might just make you feel as if you were.

 61* (2001) (TV)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Billy Crystal lovingly looks back at the New York Yankees of his childhood in `61.' The movie follows teammates Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle through the 1961 baseball season, in which Maris did the unimaginable - and unforgivable, in the eyes of many fans.
Perhaps it DID take his record being broken for baseball to forgive the outsider from Dakota for having the audacity to break Ruth's record.
Perhaps it DID take the goateed McGwire hitting 70 home runs for baseball fans to realize the significance and difficulty of Maris belting 61 in '61 - still the American League record, by the way.

61* is an endearing ode to the baseball days of yore when the press was the enemy, salaries were in check, and breaking records with bat and glove took on Ruthian proportions.
In 1961 baseball expanded its season from 154 games to 162, allowing weaker pitching into the major leagues and two New York Yankees teammates--the colorless Roger Maris and golden boy Mickey Mantle--to make an assault on the sport's ultimate record: Babe Ruth's 60 home runs.
