far-ultraviolet stars

In the first baby step towards a multi-wavelength all-sky catalog of point (compact) sources, Schiminovich and I decided to look at the point sources that are bright in the GALEX FUV band. The first question we will ask is: Is it possible to predict with good confidence that a star will be bright in GALEX FUV given only the SDSS (and maybe 2MASS) fluxes? We began by writing scripts to read a subset of columns from the GALEX and SDSS pipeline outputs, so that we can concatenate all point sources from each survey into individual, monstrous files.
