New Scientist has created this fascinating scrollable website titled How many Earths? that explains the process of discovering exoplanets suitable for human habitation. Still no word on spaceships to get us there, though.

Looking up at the night sky, it's hard not to wonder how many other planets might be circling those pinpricks of light ? and how many are home to beings gazing back at us.

Today, we are starting to get a handle on the number of roughly Earth-sized exoplanets that might be suitable for life.
