The USS Nautilus, the world’s first nuclear submarine, was commissioned
by the U.S. Navy on September 30, 1954.

The Nautilus was constructed under the direction of U.S. Navy Captain
Hyman G. Rickover, a brilliant Russian-born engineer who joined the U.S.
atomic program in 1946. In 1947, he was put in charge of the navy’s nuclear-propulsion program and began work on an atomic submarine. Regarded as
a fanatic by his detractors, Rickover succeeded in developing and delivering
the world’s first nuclear submarine years ahead of schedule. In 1952, the
Nautilus‘ keel was laid by President Harry S. Truman, and on January 21,
1954, first lady
Mamie Eisenhower broke a bottle of champagne across its
bow as it was launched into the Thames River at Groton,
Connecticut. Commissioned on September 30, 1954, it first ran under nuclear power
on the morning of January 17, 1955.

RAMAINS OF A ROMAN FORT UNEARTHED

Derek Evans, of Cotswold Archaeology's Exeter office, said that the discovery is unexpected and the significance made it an interesting project

The remains of a Roman fort which have been discovered during excavation work at the site of Exeter Bus Station. The discovery was made by the Exeter Office of Cotswold Archaeology who are working with Kier Construction to record remains of the city's Roman history ahead of the construction of a new bus station and leisure complex

(FoxNews) – The remains of an ancient Roman fort dating back nearly 2,000
years have been unearthed underneath a bus station in southern England.

The fort, located in Exeter, is a “very important and completely unexpected”
find, according to city officials, who are working on redeveloping the area.

“This is a very important, and completely unexpected, discovery, in an area
that has been heavily changed by previous post war redevelopment," Exeter
City Council member Andrew Pye said in a
statement. "Along with other
recent work in Exeter, it demonstrates just how much of the city’s history
can still survive in unlikely places, despite damage caused by bombing
and modern concrete foundations."

Pottery fragments were dug up at the site as builders and archaeologists swept the area ahead of developments at the old bus station
