A planet for every man

After reading about the discovery of Kelper 16-b, a planet in orbit of twin stars also nick-named 'Tatooine', I was inspired to do a some research. 684 planets have been discovered to date in 474 star systems. All of these within 300 light years of Earth, there's still so much left to look out for.
