The USS Nautilus, launched in 1954, was the latest development in nuclear technology and the strongest deterrent to date against Soviet aggression. It was capable of launching a nuclear strike from almost anywhere in the world, and actually traveled under the North Pole on a reconnaissance mission to Russia.
