There are 41 stars within 15 light years of our sun.  Out of those 41, only 9 of them are bright enough to see with the human eye alone.  Only 2 of the 41 (which are also 2 of the 9 bright enough to see unaided) are in the same spectral class (G) as our own sun: Alpha Centauri A, and Tau Ceti.

Current evidence seems to indicate that Tau Ceti may have five orbiting planets with two of them (Tau Ceti e and f) in the habitable zone.  However, Tau Ceti has considerably more debris (comets and asteroids) around it than our solar system, and the extra impacts from this debris on any planets is expected to have limited (or extinguished) any development of life.

Alpha Centauri A is one-half of a binary star system (Alpha Centauri AB), and there is significant debate as to whether there are any planets around either star.  The best evidence (which is still up for debate) may indicate a single earth-sized planet outside the habitable zone of Alpha Centauri B and no planets around Alpha Centauri A.

A piece of the Berlin Wall was on display in Gwinnett County... Pictures were taken with an HTC One M8 (not through Glass like many of my photos)

We had a work event last Friday at a nearby park.  I took lots of pictures #throughglass -- this one was my favorite.

In 1964, Isaac Asimov visited the New York World's Fair.  He then proceeded to write an article imagining what the World's Fair of 2014 would look like.  Overall, his predictions of what life would be like in 2014 were incredibly accurate.

Take a look for yourself:
