The special session on the Global Exploration Roadmap (GER) will enable discussion between the NASA human space exploration planning team and solar system exploration scientists. NASA is requesting science community input and feedback on a proposed International Space Exploration Coordination Group (ISECG) white paper on science enabled by missions like those in the GER. Please consider attending this special session to help develop potential science opportunities enabled by human missions.
