Polar Transit of USS Nautilus

The Nautilus was a record-breaking vessel. She was powered by a new energy source (nuclear) which made her the first true submersible. Her operations obviated existing anti-submarine warfare techniques. However, the Pacific-Atlantic transit across the top of the world via the North Pole exploring the uncharted Artic Ocean under the ice was hailed as a superb technological victory which boosted American Cold War spirits. The transit is an amazing story of engineering excellence and courage.
