I need to do a Science assignment on astronomy where I do a summary on Exoplanets off of an article, any suggestions for a strong article?

I need to do a summary on the the importance of searching for exoplanets. So far I have a thesis but I can't find an article to use with it. When I search "the importance of searching for exoplanets" it always brings up how to find them which I already know and don't need. so please help :(

My thesis:
Astronomers are vigorously searching for an exoplanet that has similar life sustaining properties as earth does because it could help give us a better understanding of how our planet works, it may contain life, and if close enough colonization could be possible, but so far there has been no such thing, even though some exoplanets have a few of these major qualities.

I know how exoplanets are detected, but I need to find an article specifically on why we search for exoplanets. I've already started writing, I just need an article to back it up
