Last Friday


Did you know…

… that today is Nautilus Launch Day? The Nautilus, the first atomic-powered submarine, was launched in Groton, Connecticut, on this day in 1954. First Lady Mamie Eisenhower christened the vessel with a bottle of champagne. Trivia fans: Just before the first lady christened the boat, a shipyard worker high on a girder called out, “Hit it good and hard, Mrs. Eisenhower.”
