    • Rimmer: He probably got to go to some really great school, while I was lumbered with Io House.

      This, along with a line in 'Meltdown' is the only reference within the TV Series to Rimmer's birthplace. In the Red Dwarf novel Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers, Rimmer states that his home is on Io, the third largest moon orbiting Jupiter. At 3630 km in diameter, it is slightly larger than Earth's moon. It was discovered by Galileo and Marius in 1610, and named after one of Zeus' lovers from Greek Mythology.
