Additional Details:
U. S. S. Nautilus, the world's first nuclear-powered submarine, is seen here leaving New London harbor on its maiden voyage. Seen in the background, left, are Southwest Ledge Lighthouse and the outline of Groton. The Nautilus can circumnavigate the globe without surfacing, and can dive deeper and travel faster than any sub before it.
