Launching Program: U.S.S. Nautilus

Title

Launching Program: U.S.S. Nautilus

Description

As the nuclear submarine emerges from the Nautilus shell on the cover of this program celebrating the U.S.S. Nautilus launch, human dominion over the atom becomes a reality. General Dynamics and New London were proud to claim this accomplishment, as the brochure states: "when the Nautilus moves down the Thames under her own power for the first time, the hopes and dreams of thousands will move with her."
