Well, well, well. Two nice visualizations have grazed the interwebz just days apart. And now it's my job to make sense of it all and share the wisdom. The idea could be a variation on my previous post about spaceships and exoplanets but it's still worth reiterating nevertheless.

The other day, the spaceships chart came out from supernova condensate. Today the Exoplanets rendered by xkcd exploded on the net.

Why, spaceships should have destinations, right? And that is exactly the reason why I bring them together in one post lest people fail to get the point.

Our species must expand to other planets! Let's build the spaceships and starships and worldships and go to Mars and beyond...to the exoplanets!

The Voyager1 probe is on the threshold of being interstellar so it is a perfect time to stress the point: Let's go 'exo' !
