    Nautilus Re-opening

    220909-N-MQ631-1332 GROTON, Conn. (September 9, 2022) - Sailors assigned to The Historic Ship Nautilus run aboard the ship during the grand re-opening ceremony of Historic Ship Nautilus in Groton, Conn. Commissioned in 1954, Nautilus was not only the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine, but also the world's first submarine to reach the North Pole in 1958. Serving for 26 years, the ship decommissioned in 1980 with 2,500 dives and deploying 510,000 miles fueled by nuclear power, and since 1986, has served as an exhibit at the Submarine Force Museum that allowed patrons to embark the only nuclear submarine open to the public. During the scheduled closure, Nautilus received $35 million in refurbishments and preservation maintenance to ensure the historic ship will be able to inform, educate, and engage the public for the next 30 years.
