Lucifer is a mini-sun that is created by an anomalous event, at the closing of the Jupiter mission, in Arthur C. Clarke’s 2010: Odyssey Two, and its 1984 film adaption.

2010 odysseyEdit

In 2010, Lucifer is created by the monoliths in order to encourage evolution on Jupiter’s moon Europa. The monoliths compress gasses in the Jovian atmosphere, making nuclear fusion possible, so as to convert Jupiter into a new Sun in our Solar System.
