Beyond the ISS: The Future of Human Spaceflight Summary and Conclusion How best can we achieve our goals and aspirations in space? Will humans and machines be present together, or machines alone?

Wherever humans may venture in space, they will be accompanied by their machines; but machines do not explore - only humans do, sometimes locally and sometimes remotely. The ISS provides the foundation in research, technology and operational experience on which an integrated strategy for further space exploration and development can be established.
