    Designs for a battery- and diesel-propelled submarine emerged in the years following the Civil , an important step was made with the successful launch of the world's first steam-powered submarine, the Ictineo II, created by Spain's Narcis Monturiol [source: Holian].This development is notable because nuclear submarines are essentially : Tom Scheve.   ABC News’ David Muir is granted rare access inside the formidable USS Florida, a nuclear powered guided missile submarine. Crew members discuss the conflict with Russia.

      The nuclear powered ship is the surface ship or the submarine, It receives its propulsion energy from the nuclear power plant on board, These ships have been widely used in the military since the s as the submarines and the aircraft carriers. Nine nuclear submarines have sunk, either by accident or scuttling. The Soviet Navy has lost five (one of which sank twice), the Russian Navy two, and the United States Navy (USN) two.. Three were lost with all hands - the two from the United States Navy ( and 99 lives lost) and one from the Russian Navy ( lives lost), and these are also the three largest losses of life in a .

    In this highly detailed book, naval historian Edward Hampshire reveals the fascinating history of the nuclear-powered attack submarines built and operated by the Soviet Union in the Cold War, including each class of these formidable craft as they developed throughout the Cold War period.   The Ohio class is a class of nuclear powered submarines used by the United States Navy. The Navy has 18 Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines and guided missile submarines. Kursk Submarine Disaster.

A nuclear submarine is a submarine powered by a nuclear performance advantages of nuclear submarines over "conventional" (typically diesel-electric) submarines are considerable. Nuclear propulsion, being completely independent of air, frees the submarine from the need to surface frequently, as is necessary for conventional large amount of power.

The development of nuclear submarines followed a similar arch with both nations -- first, submarines were developed that were powered by nuclear reactors but still used non-nuclear armaments.

Then, submarines were both powered by reactors and armed with ballistic nuclear weapons. The USSR didn't commission its first nuclear sub untiland Author: Tom Scheve.

Each displac tons submerged, the Ohio-class boats are the largest submarines ever built for the U.S. are the world's third-largest submarines, behind the Russian Navy's Soviet Built: – The nuclear plant finally made a steam-powered submarine practical: the reactor generates heat that turns water into steam to drive the turbine.

Two different reactor configurations were proposed: one used pressurized water to transfer heat from the reactor to the steam plant, the other used a liquid sodium potassium alloy.

This program leads to a safe and effective process for disposing of decommissioned nuclear-powered submarines. 1 Oct —USS Blueback (SS ), the last diesel-powered attack submarine in the U.S.

Navy’s program to safely dispose of decommissioned nuclear-powered submarines and cruisers is an example. It involves defueling the reactor(s), inactivating the ship, removing the reactor compartment for land disposal, recycling the remainder of the vessel to the maximum extent practical, and disposing of the remaining non-recyclable.
