Interesting Article on Prototype Submarine Reactor

PedlarP

Lantern Swinger
Came across this article on how the septics pioneered the first nuclear reactor for submarines.

Despite his allegedly 'my way or the highway' attitude, Rickover certainly had foresight and the courage to stand behind his principles and vision. He fought the highest levels of the US government, stepping on a lot of toes along the way, to see his dream of a true submarine come to fruition.
