U.S. Navy NR-1 Nuclear Submarine launched 1969, Groton, Conn. The 140-foot-long submarine was powered by a custom-built miniature nuclear reactor and could dive to 3,000 feet. The crew of about 10 men could stay at sea for as long as a month, but they had only frozen TV dinners to eat, bathed once a week with a bucket of water and burned chlorate candles to produce oxygen.
