The first atomic submarine is seen in this composite photograph of the actual model of the first nuclear powered submarine posed against the appropriate background of the Electric Boat Division, General Dynamics Corp., builders of the world's first such craft. The model was presented to then President Harry S. Truman on the occasion of the laying of the keep plate at Groton on June 14, 1952. While specific information is an official secret, it is believed that the Nautilus will far surpass conventional submarines both in speed and range. (Model by official United States Navy Photograph)
