Strategy for the Detection and Study of Other Planetary Systems and Extrasolar Planetary Materials: 1990-2000

Front Cover

This volume addresses a new opportunity in the planetary sciences--to extend our exploration outward to discover and study planetary systems that may have formed or are forming around other stars.
It concludes that a coordinated program of astronomical observation, laboratory research, theoretical development, and understanding of the dynamics and origins of whatever may be found would be a technologically feasible and potentially richly rewarding extension of the study of bodies within the solar system.
