dc.description.abstract This workshop was convened to begin a dating between the scientific community that is the robotic exploration mission program and a set of experts in systems and technologies that are critical to human exploratin missions. The charge to the workshop was to develop an understanding of the types of scientific exploration that would be best suited to be the human exploration missions and the capabilities and limitations of human explorers in undertaking science on those missions. en
