Groton, Connecticut is home to General Dynamics Corporation where the development of the first nuclear propulsion submarine was made possible by a group of scientists and engineers. My partner worked on the USS Nautilus (SSN 571) in the mid-1960's. It was like old home week for him to board the vessel and go through the whole history of submarine development in the nearby museum.
A 50 minute film is worth the trip to Groton by itself.
