Posted: Thursday, August 12, 2004

image Editor's note: A part of NASA's new "Vision for Space Exploration", the Project Prometheus Jupiter Icy Moons Orbiter (JIMO) mission is being studied as the first nuclear fission-powered space science mission under NASA's Project Prometheus, the space agency'initiative to develop space nuclear power and electric propulsion technologies to revolutionize space exploration.

Boeing has produced a variety of multimedia materials associated with their proposed design for Prometheus - including several videos.

One 12 minute video, clearly inspired by the film "2001: A Space Odyssey", includes a tour of the Jovian system and is well worth viewing.
