NASA’s Project Prometheus is developing nuclear power and propulsion technology that are enabling for NASA’s mission to explore the universe and search for life. In addition to the proposed Jupiter Icy Moons Orbiter (JIMO) mission, which would be the first space science mission to utilize these technologies, Project Prometheus is sponsoring broad-based research and development efforts for future exploration applications. One such activity is the investigation of high-power, high specific impulse Hall thrusters.
