Some approaches are considered to ensure safety for space nuclear power systems. These approaches are related to develop forecasting techniques for accident radiation consequences caused by impacts on structure of space nuclear power systems. Several interrelated problems are generated with solutions, which make it possible to reveal radiation consequences for the nature and population. Computation results are presented to describe destruction analysis problem for the nuclear reactor of space nuclear power system. The destruction is caused with a high velocity impact by space debris as well as with impact because of fall on the Earth surface.
