NASA is proceeding with initial efforts toward developing a new mission to explore the icy moons of Jupiter, members of a NASA-chartered science definition team said at an 8 December briefing at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

The Jupiter Icy Moons Orbiter Mission (JIMO) would include some key science and engineering goals, and could be launched at some point after 2011, if technical and funding issues are resolved, they said.
