NASA conducted the Human Exploration Community Workshop on the International Space Exploration Coordination Group (ISECG) Global Exploration Roadmap (GER) in San Diego, CA from November 14-16, 2011. There were over 100 people in attendance, and 630 unique participants via the webcast. The three main objectives articulated by the chair, Kathy Laurini, were achieved:
1. Share the details of the GER mission scenarios and the international drivers which influenced them.
2. Discuss the scenarios with the broader community, seeking innovative ideas which improve them. The scenarios are considered as technically feasible and programmatically implementable references which can inform decision making of participating agencies.
3. Discuss innovative ideas which build on the ISS and initial exploration capabilities in order to enable the GER mission scenarios.
