2Title:  USS Enterprise at Newport News shipyard Add
 Summary:  The USS Enterprise at Newport News, Virginia. The Enterprise is powered by eight nuclear reactors. Congress appropriated Enterprise in 1958; its construction cost was approximately 472 million dollars. High construction and operating costs for nuclear (relative to conventional) carriers led to a decade-long delay in the construction of additional nuclear-powered carriers.

3Title:  USS Enterprise in 1967 Add
 Summary:  The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, USS Enterprise, in 1967. On 5 January 1968, the Enterprise was followed by a detected November-class Soviet submarine at a sustained speed of 31 knots. This incident, which illustrated the growing potential of Soviet nuclear-powered attack submarines, spurred the development and commissioning of a new class of high-speed attack submarines. The submarines in this class, starting with the USS Los Angeles (SSN-688), were powered by the S6G reactor plant.
