Paper Abstract

We describe the TPF-O science program composed of interleaved imagery and spectroscopy of planets in the habitable zones of nearby stars. We give the rationale for the science program and argue that TPF-O offers the best approach to achieving the original goals set for the Terrestrial Planet Finder.
