21Title:  USS Scorpion, Skipjack-class attack submarine Add
 Summary:  The USS Scorpion (SSN-589), a Skipjack-class submarine that was powered by an S5W reactor plant. The Scorpion was lost at sea on 5 June 1968; the cause of the submarine's loss was never definitively determined.

22Title:  The USS Thresher underway Add
 Summary:  Aerial view of the USS Thresher underway. The Thresher was constructed at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Her construction was plagued by difficulties, in part due to the use of HY-80 hull welds (needed to enable deeper submerged operations) and Portsmouth's lack of experience and proficiency, relative to Electric Boat, in building nuclear subs. The Thresher was lost at sea on 10 April 1963. A Navy court of inquiry found that engine room flooding, perhaps caused by the failure of a silver-brazed joint, resulted in a loss of electrical power and (following a reactor scram), a loss of proplusion power.

24Title:  USS Virginia (lead boat in Virginia class) underway Add
 Summary:  The USS Virginia (SSN-774) departs Groton in early 2009 for an underway period that included an Operational Reactor Safeguard Examination (ORSE). This exam is designed to test the engineering department's ability to operate the reactor in a safe manner.

26Title:  Artist's conception of the USS Thresher, showing location of torpedo tubes Add
 Summary:  An artist's conception of the USS Thresher firing torpedoes from its midships torpedo tubes. Since the Thresher's sonar equipment was located in the bow, her four torpedo tubes were placed further back in the hull.

27Title:  USS Thresher, bow view Add
 Summary:  A bow view of the USS Thresher (showing the sail and diving planes), taken in July 1961. The Thresher was the lead boat in her class, designed to support operations at a depth greater than that possible with submarines of the Skipjack class. The Thresher was built at the Portsmouth Naval Yard and was powered by an S5W reactor plant.

28Title:  The USS Scorpion deployed, shortly before being lost at sea Add
 Summary:  The USS Scorpion, alongside the USS Tallahatchie County (AVB-2) near Naples, Italy in April 1968. This photo was taken approximately six weeks prior to the loss of the Scorpion. The cause of the sub's loss was never definitively determined. One plausible theory: A torpedo exploded inside the submarine (due to an internal battery malfunction), leading to the loss of the sub.

30Title:  USS Nimitz arrives at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard Add
 Summary:  The USS Nimitz, the second nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, being guided into drydock at Puget Sound Naval Shpyard. The Nimitz was funded in the 1967 shipbuilding program, nearly a decade after construction began on the USS Enterprise. The Nimitz is powered by two A4W reactor plants. This required the development of a reactor plant with a significantly higher power rating than that of the Enterprise's eight A2W plants.
