Project Prometheus

In 2003, NASA's Project Prometheus was established to develop technology and conduct advanced studies in the areas of radioisotope power system and nuclear power and propulsion for the peaceful exploration of the solar system. Project Prometheus, organized within NASA's Office of Space Science, has the goal of developing the first reactor powered spacecraft capability and demonstrating that it can be operated safely and reliably in deep space on long duration missions. The proposed Jupiter Icy Moons Orbiter has been indentified as the first space science mission to potentially incorporate this new revolutionary capability.
