I read about the distance calculation og stars from wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallax

Im just an amateur mathematican (college grade) but I seem to remember that according to Einstein space bends around planetary bodies. Does this influence parallax distance calculations or is it irrelevant? How accurate can you measure distance?
