  EU R&D Seventh Framework Programme(FP7)provides€5 million funding,the total R&D investment 5.6 million euros from the EU member states France 4(general coordinator),Germany,Italy and the United Kingdom joint Russia,major scientific and technological personnel of the space agencies of Europe MEGAHIT team.In August 2014 the successful completion of the EU nuclear spacecraft propulsion technology development roadmap systems,recently received independent international peer review of the Commission unanimously approved the Group of Experts.To this end,the EU adopted a decision Horizon 2020,will follow the roadmap activities and related research and innovation projects,directly provide the necessary financial support.
 
  Nuclear-powered spacecraft propulsion system,will greatly enhance the ability of space exploration spacecraft.5-10 megawatt(MW)nuclear electric propulsion systems orders of magnitude,can carry heavy cargo or manned spacecraft,spacecraft relative to conventional fuels in a more efficient and more flexible way to enter Mars orbit and return to Earth.Spacecraft electric propulsion system uses electromagnetic radiation heating and ionizing xenon(Xenon)or hydrogen(Hydrogen),to guide the high temperature plasma gas is ejected through a special magnetic nozzles produce spacecraft momentum.
 
  France and Britain since the 1980s,nuclear-powered spacecraft were started propulsion systems research and development,the development of the conceptual design and material to process and module production,part of the technology has matured.In 2007,the EU Lisbon Treaty(TEU)revised to require the harmonization of member states at the EU level space activities,including research and innovation activities,pooling of resources sharing of results.Horizon 2020 EU-funded project to support research and innovation,focusing on the development of pilot demonstration and industrialized part of mature technologies,will provide matching funds directly(without public tender).MEGAHIT R&D team responsible person,nuclear spacecraft propulsion system cross-sectoral interdisciplinary research and innovation activities,mostly belonging to long-term research and innovation projects,long way to go.However,some innovative technological achievements of research and innovation activities,has successfully entered the commercial market.
