Atmospheric Sciences 2 University of Wyoming and KASA Headquarters, Code SR 3 Southwest Research Institute, Boulder Office On May 15-17. 1995, three Rocky Motultain research institutions hosted a confererJce to dis­ cuss the scientific basis, teclmological options, and programmatic implications of a large-scale effort to find and study Earth-like planets outside the Solar System. Our workshop attracted scientists, erJgineers, space agency administrators, and the public media to discuss and debate the most promising teclmological options and opportunities. Major programs and proposals to search for and study exo-planets were preserJted and discussed. In addition, our meeting - incided -with NASA's "roadmap" study for the Exploration of Neighboring Planetary Systems (<_22_27_27_5c_ps29_.20_our20_meeting20_was20_the20_first20_international20_confererjce20_on20_this20_subject2c_20_affording20_an20_opc2ad_20_portunity20_for20_several20_members20_of20_this20_study20_to20_participate20_in20_the20_debates20_over20_new20_technologies.20_our20_meeting20_proyed20_to20_be20_timely.20_shortly20_thereafter2c_20_in20_late20_199-520_and20_early20_19962c_20_two20_groups20_of20_astronomers20_annotulced20_the20_first20_discoveries20_of20_planetary20_companions20_to20_nearby20_stars.20_using20_high-precision20_radial20_velocity20_measuremerjts20_to20_detect20_the20_gravitational20_reflex20_motion20_of20_the20_star.20_the20_first20_three20_detections20_include20_a20_jupiter-mass20_companion20_to20_the20_solar-like20_star.20_5120_pegasi2c_20_and20_two20_remarkable20_objects20_of20_mass20_at20_least20_2.20_320_and20_6. our="" meeting="" was="" the="" first="" international="" confererjce="" on="" this="" _subject2c_="" affording="" an="" _opc2ad_="" portunity="" for="" several="" members="" of="" study="" to="" participate="" in="" debates="" over="" new="" technologies.="" proyed="" be="" timely.="" shortly="" _thereafter2c_="" late="" 199-5="" and="" early="" _19962c_="" two="" groups="" astronomers="" annotulced="" discoveries="" planetary="" companions="" nearby="" stars.="" using="" high-precision="" radial="" velocity="" measuremerjts="" detect="" gravitational="" reflex="" motion="" star.="" three="" detections="" include="" a="" jupiter-mass="" companion="" solar-like="" 51="" _pegasi2c_="" remarkable="" objects="" mass="" at="" least="" 2.="" 3="">
