While a dozen space agencies, including NASA, have agreed upon a Global Exploration Roadmap that lays out general plans for human missions leading up to Mars, an April 10 workshop discussed the best way to get there, and the role of human missions to the surface of the Moon.

The NASA Community Workshop on the Global Exploration Roadmap, held at the Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, USA, brought together representatives from NASA, industry and other space agencies to discuss the updated version of the roadmap. That report, released last year by the International Space Exploration Coordination Group (ISECG), a group of 12 space agencies, outlined pathways for human exploration leading to humans on the surface of Mars.

“We all agree that, as a common, long-term goal, humans on the surface of Mars is something we all strive for,” NASA’s Roland Martinez, one of the meeting organizers, said in an opening presentation at the workshop.
