Second Earth

How much value would you put on the second planet that human beings can establish habitat of colonies? We have been searching for earth like planets in other star systems for the past few decades. So far, as of November 15, 2013, we have found identified 1042 exoplanets in 963 star systems. The very first one is Gamma Cephei Ab by Hatzes in 1988. It is a giant gas planet that is 45 light years away in the constellation of Cepheus.^
