@DNA Thumbs drive,
OK OK OK.
You don't understand Hubbells Law, or Leavitts equation. NOW you don't buy triangulation (maybe you want to use its more common name in stellar distance measurement, which is PARALLAX).
Hippacos was launched in 1989 to give better "spreads" on the parraalx to stars to improve measurements to such stars s Proxima Centauri.
As far as I know, we still use these techniques . Our methods of measurement (thanks to modern instrumentation) are waaay better than when Brahe and the other guys were screwing with it.
You seem to be absent, much mechanical knowledge in Astral physics, is this on purpose? Does it conflict with some religious belief in panspermia?
