Russia to Develop Nuclear Engine for Deep Space Flights

Russia will continue to develop a nuclear engine for deep space flights, according to the country’s Federal Space Program for 2016-2025 years.

      Earlier a number of Russia'a media sources reported that Roscosmos was apparently going to close down its work on creating a megawatt-class nuclear engine meant for deep space flights. However, according to the Federal Space Program, the engine's creation is still included to the plans and scheduled for 2029-2030.

      There are several other ambitious projects which are going to become a part of the program, including a moon exploration program, which will send a manned mission to the Earth's natural satellite. Russia's space agency also plans to construct a super-heavy rocket needed to send spacecraft beyond Earth's orbit.

      The Federal Space Program is expected to be presented to the Russia's government by June 10, 2015.

      According to Roscosmos, the budgetary requirements for the Space Program through 2025 will be approximately $37 billion.
