Alpha Centauri contains three stars and at least two known planets, and we'll probably find out a lot more about our nearest stellar neighbor after the "nanocraft" arrives.

KD Throws Down

Hola, amigos! It’s been a while since I last posted. I hope all my followers out there in Dub-Nation had a very Merry Christmas and are planning a wonderful New Year. I know I am. Our Warriors are on their way to another title. Already this year we have a league-leading 31 wins, the best offense in the NBA, the best point-differential in the NBA, as well as a top-five defense.
