5. Space motion

Combining the proper motion and radial velocity with the distance estimate of [FORMULA] pc, we obtained a heliocentric space velocity (Johnson & Soderblom 1987) of [FORMULA] km s-1. Although this space velocity is consistent with the kinematic class of young disk stars, it was noted by Fleming, Schmitt & Giampapa (1995) that kinematic class is a poor age indicator for the nearby stars.
