The Jupiter Icy Moon Orbiter (JIMO) is the first planed space craft to demonstrate the use of nuclear power in space. JIMO will test a number of methods of producing power in space. The mission is currently postponed as there is questions of weather a polar orbit is necessary and there is currently no vehicle big enough to launch it.
