Notes and Changes:
Interferometer FSR now included in CE curves (credit Jan Harms).

v9: Added representative O2 data (G1701571, rebinned). Removed O2 projected curve. Rebinned S6 data. Updated python script to be compatible with Python 3, and tweaked the plot output.

v10: Added O2 cross-spectrum from Shivaraj's alog 34203

v11: Changed Voyager curve to BlueBird5

v12: Added early O3 curves for H1, L1, V1. Removed projected O3 curve.

v13: Replaced CE curves with CE1 and CE2 as used in arXiv:1903.04615 (Decadal science whitepaper).
