51Title:  Map showing the location of Naval Reactors Facility at the Idaho National Laboratory Add
 Summary:  This map shows a section of the Idaho National Laboratory, including the location of the Naval Reactors Facility. In 1965, NRF included the S1W and A1W prototype plants, along with the recently-built S5G prototype and the Expended Core Facility (ECF); the latter two facilities are noted on the map.

52Title:  Launch of the USS Skipjack Add
 Summary:  The launch of the USS Skipjack, lead boat in her class. The Skipjack incorporated a new hull design to improve her underwater speed, through a decrease in the length-to-beam ratio (making the boat both shorter and wider compared with nuclear submarines such as the Nautilus and Skate). The Skipjack was the first submarine powered by the S5W reactor plant, which became the Navy's submarine fleet reactor, used to drive both attack and ballistic missile submarines.

53Title:  The George Washington underway Add
 Summary:  The USS George Washington, the first Polaris missile submarine. The George Washington was the lead boat in her class and was powered by an S5W reactor plant. In November 1960, the she began submerged patrols, providing the United States with a secure ballistic missile capability.

54Title:  USS Ohio, the first Trident submarine Add
 Summary:  The USS Ohio, lead boat in the Ohio ballistic missile submarine class, during her construction at Electric Boat. The Ohio is powered by an S8G reactor. An S8G prototype plant was built at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory facility in West Milton, New York; the prototype reactor achieved full power operations in December 1979. The Ohio was commissioned on 11 November 1981, about two and a half years behind schedule.

55Title:  USS Ohio during her conversion to a guided missile submarine Add
 Summary:  The USS Ohio at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, during her conversion from a ballistic to a guided missile submarine. Following this conversion, the Ohio was redesignated SSGN-726. The redesigned submarine is capable of launching cruise missiles and inserting Navy SEALs into combat areas.

56Title:  The USS Los Angeles in 2009 Add
 Summary:  The USS Los Angeles, lead boat in her class, at sea near Apra Harbor, Guam. Eventually, 53 Los Angeles-class submarines were built. These fast-attack subs have a displacement of 6,900 tons submerged and a maximum speed in the range of 32 knots. The USS Los Angeles was decommissioned in 2010.

57Title:  The USS Nimitz underway, with nuclear-powered escorts Add
 Summary:  The USS Nimitz at sea, escorted by the nuclear-powered guided missile cruisers USS South Carolina (top) and USS California. The Nimitz was commissioned on 3 May 1975 and is powered by two A4W reactor plants co-designed by the Knolls and Bettis atomic power laboratories. The nearly fourteen year delay between the commissionings of the Enterprise and Nimitz was, in large part, the product of Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara's refusal to accept a four reactor plant carrier, and the severe design challenges of powering an aircraft carrier (including propulsion and catapults) using two reactor plants.

58Title:  Missile tubes in USS Sam Rayburn Add
 Summary:  The USS Sam Rayburn during her service as a ballistic missile submarine. The submarine was decommissioned in 1989 and converted to a moored training S5W prototype facility. The Sam Rayburn is currently moored at Naval Weapons Station Charleston.

59Title:  Aerial view of General Dynamics Electric Boat Add
 Summary:  An aerial photo of the General Dynamics Electric Boat yard in Groton, Connecticut. Electric Boat designed and built the first two nuclear submarines, the Nautilus and the Seawolf, and served as the lead yard for the early nuclear submarine classes, such as Skate and Skipjack. Electric Boat continues its pivotal role in submarine design and construction, including its lead yard responsibility for the USS Virginia (SSN-774) class of attack submarines.

60Title:  Shippingport reactor pressure vessel Add
 Summary:  The reactor pressure vessel for the Shippingport Atomic Power Station is unloaded from a rail car in the plant's fuel handling building. According to historians Richard Hewlett and Francis Duncan, the Shippingport plant was "the world's first full-scale electrical generating plant using nuclear energy." In part owing to Hyman Rickover's success in building the Mark I (S1W) plant in a joint Atomic Energy Commission-Navy project, the AEC approved a proposal that had Rickover and his organization manage the design and construction of the Shippingport plant.
