According to the many historians, September 30, 1954 is supposed to hold some of the most significant. On this date, The USS Nautilus, the world’s first nuclear submarine, is commissioned by the U.S. Navy.
Why is this of any importance to us? According to the History Channel, “In its early years of service, the USS Nautilus broke numerous submarine travel records and in August 1958 accomplished the first voyage under the geographic North Pole. After a career spanning 25 years and almost 500,000 miles steamed, the Nautilus was decommissioned on March 3, 1980. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1982, the world’s first nuclear submarine went on exhibit in 1986 as the Historic Ship Nautilusat the Submarine Force Museum in Groton, Connecticut.”
