RICKOVER: THE BIRTH OF NUCLEAR POWER

Admiral Hyman G. Rickover was a flamboyant maverick, a unique American hero. When few thought it possible, then-Captain Rickover harnessed the power of the atom to drive the first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus, whose trip under the polar ice pack was one of the great adventure stories of the 1950s. Later, Rickover built the world's first nuclear aircraft carrier and the first commercial nuclear power plant. Today, when questions about nuclear power have arisen again in the wake of the disaster in Japan, we would do well to consider the story of the man who started it all: Hyman G. Rickover.
