The NUCLEON satellite experiment is designed for direct measurements of the energy spectra of cosmic-ray nuclei and the chemical composition (Z=1−30) at an energy range up to 1000 TeV. The energy spectra of protons and helium nuclei are presented. Some spectral peculiarities were found. The differences of protons and helium spectra are investigated.
