Abstract
An astrometric interferometer in space will provide a dramatic improvement in the accuracy with which stellar positions may be measured. The potential and the far ranging impact in science of this capability has deeply impressed the scientific community, with the result that a high priority has been assigned to a mission for precision astrometry. In this talk I will review the origins of the AIM concept, describe the scientific opportunities, and show the relationship to ground capabilities and to other space astronomy missions.
