December 11, 2003: Fly Me To The Moons . . .

. . . of Jupiter, that is.

JIMO is the Jupiter Icy Moons Orbiter, the largest craft ever sent to the outer planets. Launching in 2011 or so, JIMO will get up close and personal with Ganymede, Callisto, and Europa to confirm the long-suspected existence of oceans beneath the moons' icy shells . . . and perhaps extraterrestrial life in those oceans.

CNN.com has the story. For an advance peek, you can also check out Transhuman Space: Deep Beyond, our sourcebook on the outer planets for Transhuman Space.
