How can low-cost robotic missions support human exploration goals? What are some novel options - and practical limitations - for robotic precursors to retire human-spaceflight’s Strategic Knowledge Gaps? What roles could robotic "adjunct" systems play during and between human missions, and what are the driving issues for safe and productive combined operations? Finally, when SLS, Orion, Commercial Crew, and other private human systems are operational, how might those capabilities fundamentally change low-cost robotic missions of the future?

This session about anticipated and undiscovered synergies between robotic and human exploration will be conducted as a panel discussion among experts active in this interface today.
